    Hi everyone,

    Has anyone had this symptom? I've been having a really bad day today and suddenly I got this stabbing pain on the right of my head and I thought I was going to pass out. Could this be happening from all the stress I've been under?
    I'm scared.

    I've had stabbing pains in the right side of my head, that is one of the things that sent me back to my doctor. I have Lupus too and thought it might be connocted to that be she didn't think so. I went through a lot of test (all Neg.) that is when I was dx with fibro, that's been 3 years ago and I still have the stabbing pain in my head if I'm really stressed out.

    I can't say for sure that is why you are having the stabbing pain but it can happen. I will pray for you.

    Those pains are scary, I have had them manytimes. I also have Fibro. I started to take magnesium, then I upped my amount of vitamin E, they stopped.

    But if I get angry or stressed about something, I will get them.

    Try to not let your emotions get away from you, I know, thats easy to say, but hard to do!

    The magnesium is wonderful for all those crazy things we get. Its natures natural tranqualizer, thats probably why it helps us so much.

    Shalom, Shirl

    I also get those stabbing pains in the right side of my head. The pain comes in intrivils about a minute apart lasting on long couple of seconds. I also get the same type of pain in my ear lopes. It sounds odd but it is just as painful as those pains in your head. I figure this is just one of those fms things that I have to learn to manage. When I first starting having this I had no idea that I had fms. It was scarry.

    I have had the stabbing pains in my head. Mine are either from stress and/or hormones. Also diet can play a major part in this if you have reactions to food or meds. Hope she is better...Pamela

    I get those stabbing pains in my head a lot. It used to scare me but after so many years of it, I know its just this DD. I can remember having them as a kid.

    The "ice pick in the head" pains. I get them right behind my right ear and they are worse when I am stressed. The pain is blinding and stops me in my tracks.

    Love, Mikie

    Hello. I also get the stabbing pains in my head. It can be all over, but mine is mostly on the right side. I haven't been able to figure out what makes them better or worse. I may try the increase in the Vitamin E that some have mentioned. I have been taking Tylenol daily to help them. I have had a MRI, and it was okay. They can be scary! I also posted a thread similar to yours if you want to check it out. Have a blessed day!!!

    Comprehensive Head Ache Center that gave me Aventyl (sp)60mgs pd for about 18 months. They said it was a chemical imbalance and it can be cured. I will say for me it worked. They were nuerologists (sp). Good luck to you all. Kim and Gary
