Why Do I Have Intermittent Shooting Or Throbbing Pain In The Left Temple Area?
Follow the advice. Observe how you stay afterward.
Well, first of all, take a mild analgesic like Acetaminophen (Tylenol) and give it some time...Please don't engage in any physical activities for the time being, just take rest.
Was there any recent history of a cough / cold / flu?
Any vision-related issues?
Considering the fact that it's intermittent, next step would be a blood pressure check-up at different posture. If the blood pressure found in higher range, there may a requirement to start anti-hypertensive medications after a clinical evaluation.
If this is the first time you're noticing this then please report it to your primary also to keep him/her in the loop.
Let me know if I can assist you further. Take Care.
