Sensitive, pain in side of head was created by Michael
Hi everyone,

This pain I get in the left side of my head above my ear I have had a few times, it’s not like a headache but it’s sensitive to touch all along the side for 100mm or so .. It comes and goes, I have mentioned to a GP at a time my usual GP was away and I got the usual ear check and touch and feel and a prescription for panadeine forte, with the usual “come back if it persists” but it doesn’t, it lasts a few days and then it’s gone, might be weeks or months before it comes back with the same pain and sensitivity in the same area, never changes.

I am actually surprised it’s causing so much annoyance because my lumbar pain is having it’s own party and would usually take precedence ...

Just wondering if anyone else has weird strange pains occur for what seems no reason ..

Hope your all having a good day.

Hi MIchael.

Last year I had a problem with pain in that spot and it was diagnosed as Shingles.
Lets hope that not what youv'e got.

Thanks arjay, I’ve had shingles before and this is not the same as what I had. Since posting it has disappeared again, I have been told it could be neuralgia which I believe is nerve pain, it makes sense because of my lower back and leg have constant nerve pain.

Anyhow, it comes and goes so not much I can do about it.
