I am a 30 year old male, married, fit, and otherwise healthy. A couple weeks ago, I experienced a somewhat scary pulsating pain within the left side of my head that lasted only seconds. This happened at least twice that evening, and since that day, I've had more frequent left-side headaches / pains that come and go quickly with no apparent reason. I've also noticed that shaking my head to help dry hair post-shower has caused discomfort, though this probably started a few months back. As someone with no history of consistent headaches, I am a little concerned. Also a couple weeks ago, I noticed a swollen lymph node in my right armpit that seems somewhat marbleized, and has not gone away even after switching deodorants. I imagine that these symptoms are unrelated, but do wonder if anybody might be able to provide any educated insight. I will likely schedule a visit with my PCP soon. Thanks so much!View Thread
