I never know with headaches I get a fair few, constantly just there...but recently with a bout of, we think, sinusitis I'm now getting the usual weird sharp pains in the head that are out of the ordinary. I still have a shunt, and this will not be removed unless it is causing problems, so every time I have an unusually severe headache/pain especially around that area it's big panic by my GP, nhs24 just sends the ambulance round and it's a month of scan after scan while I enevitably feel worse! I refuse to keep doing this, but there is no other option out there if I get a severe pain in my head more than normal. The past few weeks I've been getting a stabbing pain behind my right eye, and this sometimes can be felt over my right side towards the back of my head, where the shunt is.... should I be getting it checked or is it just the effects of my injury/a bad migraine/ bad sinusitis?! I totally get the post re calling us hypochondriacs! Hehe sorry for long post!
