What causes severe headaches?

Hi I m 24 and when I was a child about 8 or 9 I was in a car accident. I fractured my skull but my right temple. I was in Mississippi and was rushed to Jackson and was unconscious for awhile. So for the last 2 months I ve been getting sharp pains that s worst then a headache that start on that side and goes all the way down to my neck. At first I thought it was something that would eventually pass but now I m left thinking it s more serious because nothing stops it anymore I m always left trying to sleep away they pain and not cry because that s just going to add more pain. So I guess my question is should I go see a doctor or continue with the over the counter medicine.

Hello!

Welcome and thank you for asking on HCM!

I passed carefully through your question and would explain that your symptoms could be related to occipital neuralgia or trigeminal neuralgia.

Considering your past medical history of concussion and the fact that you have never such severe type of headaches, I would recommend consulting with a neurologist for a careful physical exam and performing a brain MRI.

Hope you will find this answer helpful!

Kind regards,

Dr. Iliri
