Sharp Pain - Back of Head
In the last couple of days I have been experiencing a sharp (localized to a fairly small area) pain in the back of my head top right side. It doesn't hurt a lot and it goes away very quickly (moments). I've never experienced headaches like this. I just wondered if I should be going in to see a doctor. If so, what specialty?
If the pain persists, it may be a good idea to see a neurologist.
