For several years, I've been getting very short, sharp pains at the back of my head, lasting 1-10 seconds only that come on after: -bending over -yelling loud -coughing -blowing nose things like that... Ive had an mri, nothing odd shows up. my doc wanted to give me pain med, but the pain goes away 100% in about 10 seconds, so meds will not help. anyone else get these? what is the actual diagnosis? any meds/procedures to help or prevent the onset? i get 5-10 per day and while they dont last long, each is about a 9 out of 10 on the pain scale.View Thread
