over the last 2 days I have had a constant steady pain on the right side of head/face, not throbbing or pulsing, just a dull steady pain.. from the ear along the upper cheek bone was severe pain, like I had been hit with something across my face, and at random, could be once every 30 min. to a couple of hrs. I would have a sharp piercing pain from where the upper and lower jaw bone meet, across my head.. would last maybe a second or less, but it would almost bring me to my knees... only thing that I could think that it would might feel like is maybe an ice pick from one side to the other and gone.. very direct and sharp... my balance would be a little off, and at times felt like I was almost scatterbrained.. any ideas as to what I might have been experiencing? its now the 3rd day, this morning was a little pain but has tapered off a great deal..
