Sunday at 7am was the first time i experienced this, sharp electrical shck feeling in my head directly above my eye. it started at about 7am and went on and off for about 5 minutes. then last night at 12:45am it was so bad that it caused me to wake up and it lasted on and off for about 45 minutes. so far today there has not been anything further, however, i have been left feeling a little fuzzy in and arround the left side of my face and neck . (any thoughts as to what might have caused this)?

A common cause for such intermittent episodic pain is migraine. There are many variants of migraine and presentations may vary from type to type. Nevertheless you can consult your physician for a closer look as sinusitis could also cause similar symptoms. If you develop any new symptoms such as numbness of the left side of face or any deviation of angle of mouth, then do consult your physician as early as possible.
