Hi I have been experiencing twinges of pain on the left side of my head on and off for the past 3 hours. They only last about one to two seconds and that is why I call them twinges, they are not severe but I have not felt them before. They come intermittently and more regular when I was talking to some friends about them. I am 51 yrs and otherwise in reasonably good health. With many thanks, Martin
