Pain in head

Does anyone else get shooting pains in their head? It’s like lightning bolts and is very uncomfortable. Does anyone get medication for it?

I used to get this in the past. Years ago I mean I was on university mind was stressed out. Maybe it was because of that because Ivdont remember the last time I had this sympton or sign but The only treatment I ever had is steroids. Pr paracetamol. And I dont think I had them for this. Maybe its one of those symptoms which passes by its self after a lil time but I still cant assure you with it.

After all you better mension it to your nurse so he writes it down. And give you a trusted support.

@sophiec17 , MS can present us with all manner of pain. There’s some information on this here :-

I believe that you are UK-base, so I would contact your MS nurse in the first instance, to discuss this. They may suggest a visit to your GP to rule out any non-MS problems.

It could well be Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN), although I wouldn’t wish that on anybody………
