Hi, On friday I put my hand up to my left temple to feel the pulse and one of the arteries pulsated against my finger and I felt a sharp pain go through the left side of my head and leave. Now I feel a slgiht pressure against the left side of my face and skull . I am curious if I did anything major or if my mind is just playing tricks on me.

You have a pulsatile artery over left temple.It is a normal phenomenon The head ache may be due to two reasons,either anxiety which is a common cause or may be due to Temporal arteitis for which you have to consult Neuro physician There is not a serious problem These prblems are self limiting and get resolved of its own.
