Isolated headaches....

So, I'm having these headaches, but not really the kind of headache I'm used to.  It isn't the typical throbbing sinus pressure headache, or even stress related type. I get these sharp pains that hit hard and fast, but really isolated in size.  Maybe the size of a quarter or a bit larger.  And hits hard enough… Read More
