Default Ice Pick Headaches

Anyone else suffer from ice pick headaches? This is a new thing for me.

I occasionally get headaches (especially if my sinuses are bothering me), but these are different.

About a month ago I was sitting on the couch when I felt this HORRIBLE stabbing pain in my temple. I googled it and found out it was an ice pick headache. I took excedrin and it helped.

Now I have another one. I felt nauseated at first, and then my head felt like it was being stabbed. I just took excedrin and I'm hoping it will get rid of it.

Hopefully it's not any sort of sign of an underlying problem

Ice pick headaches are sharp, stabbing pains occurring as a single stab or as a series of stabs, occurring mostly in the eye and orbit, temple, or parietal regions. Stabs last a few seconds, and may recur throughout the day, usually at irregular intervals. This headache type is not well understood, even though it occurs more commonly in migraine sufferers. Although this is often referred to as ice pick headache, the official term according to the International Headache Society is Primary Stabbing Headache. It has also been referred to as "jabs and jolts."
