I have been having sharp needle pain like quick zaps

I have been having sharp needle pain like quick zaps in my right temple, it goes about 3 quick zaps then stops, then again after a couple of minutes, another 3 zaps. They happen unexpected throughout the day. I just had a very severe cold about 3 weeks ago and still feel congested and with sinus pressure. Could these zaps be related to sinus pressure or sinus infection? Could they be something more serious?

When I work out it starts to feel like im getting needles pushed into the back of my brain. its sharpe and quick continuous pain. My chest ( not as often as my head) starts to feel like someones sitting on it. I can still breathe okay through all of this. the more often I work out the long the needles in my brain lasts and the worse it gets. I have just recently started working out 4-5 times a week.

I am 46 yrs old, female. I have degenerative disks and 2 yrs ago had 3 cervical disks replaced with instrumentation. Now I am having very sharp pain and pins and needle sensation in my upper back and the left upper portion feels like my skin is numb and freezing cold. This pain wakes me up at night. What would cause this-it isnt going away and is more frequent. Thanks!

Hello. I have been experiencing sharp pains for as long as I can remember in the top of my left lung . It comes occasionally and stays for 1-2minutes. I would randomly experience shap pains in the middle of the day. Every time I breathe deeply the pain feels like a needle poking the top of my left lung. Short quick breaths are all I can do before it eventually goes away. Do you know what s wrong with me?
