What Could Cause Sharp Intermittent Intensifying Pain Above And To The Rear Of My Ear?
Different conditions may cause such symptoms. Read below.
If the pain lasts only seconds, primary stabbing headaches (or ice pick headaches) may be one of the conditions. This condition is seen mostly among migraine sufferers.
If the pain lasts longer, and sensory changes are concomitant, occipital neuralgia may be the culprit.
In rare cases, intracranial vascular malformations may cause such symptoms too.
Getting evaluated by your primary care doctor is the first step in understanding your condition better, it is necessary. He can also order further tests and consultations in order to achieve a correct diagnosis.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
I wish you good health.
