What Causes Sharp Pain In Right Temple?

I am experiencing a right side dull pain in my temple and at times sharp. My right side cheeks and face feels kinda tender when touched. I know I have been experiencing headaches and neck pains as well. Im just concerned due to a previous aneurysm on right side in back of my head lower to neck.

Hello,

I can understand your concern. It is logical that you can assume it to be aneurysm again as you have had it before. However, if it was aneurysm, you should be feeling symptoms like pulsations, numbness over the area etc.

What you are experiencing is a sharp and dull pain episodes in the cheek area which seems like pain from infection of the oral cavity or due to sinusitis. It could also be pain related to Trigeminal or Facial nerve.

I would advise you to visit a dentist for examination of the oral cavity to look for presence of infection in the area. If dentist clears you for any foci of infection, an ENT specialist or physician can examine you for sinus or nerve related problems.

By the time you see a doctor, you can take Ibuprofen 400 mg or Ketorolac 10 mg up to thrice day to have relief from pain.

I hope this information helps. Thank you for choosing HealthcareMagic. I wish you feel better soon.

Best,
Dr. Viraj Shah
