headache :-( ??? or stress???
For the last 2 days I've been getting these very painfull almost like headaches just above my right ear, it is like a flashing stabing pain, and shoots right into my right eye, "very painfull" is it something to be worried about or maybe just a bit stress related?

Tan, it doesn’t sound like a typical stress headache and the best would be to see your doctor if it hasn’t cleared up by the time you receive this reply. I wrote something on the most common types of headaches a while ago and if you mail me at, I’ll mail you a copy. Good luck.
