Headaches, stabbing pain behind ear, dizziness, burning smell. Treatment options?

I have these recent stabbing headaches , like someone is putting a knife through my head behind my right ear. They only last a few seconds to a minute at most. Then I m just left dizzy and kind of with a dull headache. Sometimes I smell things husband is mad because he thinks I m crazy and it always sends him searching the house for a fire. I m I crazy or should I have this checked.

Thank you for posting your query.

You need to be evaluated for your symptoms. These symptoms warrant investigations such as MRI scan of brain and electroencephalography (EEG). We need to exclude a diagnosis of seizures and episodic neuralgic pain.

You would improve with medications such as carbamazepine.

Please consult a neurologist for opinion.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,

Dr Sudhir Kumar MD (Internal Medicine), DM (Neurology)
