HiCustomer I'm sorry you had to wait so long. The other expert/experts must not have gotten my message, I apologize. Thank you for your patience. I'm back online now.

What you are describing sounds like an "icepick migraine". You should be seen by a doctor, since you describe this as a new type of headache for you. It could also be a migraine, a cluster headache, or a sinus headache. You did not mention if you had any pre-existing health conditions, and since I do not know your history, I do recommend that you call your doctor now about this symptom. A complete physical exam, CT Scans, an MRI, bloodwork and some other tests should be done to see what type of headache you are experiencing. I would not wait two months for this. Try to find a doctor that can see you much sooner.

If you experience a sudden or severe headache, a headache that does not go away, dizziness, vomiting, or visual changes, have someone take you to an emergency room right away.

If it turns out to be migraines, your doctor can give you medications to alleviate the pain. It all depends on what type of headache you are experiencing and the cause.

Please call your doctor now about this symptom.

If you have anymore questions, please continue to ask- that's what I'm here for! Otherwise, if you are satisfied with this answer, and if I have helped you, please hit the accept button and leave positive feedback. Thanks, Gloria
