Weird feeling on side of the head


So the last 4-5 days i have had a strange feeling on side on the right side of my head near the temple. It's not consistent, but throughout random times on the day i will feel a pulsating feeling there. It's almost like a random twitch or muscle spasm. It usually happens about 10-15 times a day. Just trying to make sure it's nothing concerning. Hopefully i described it in a way that makes sense

    Hello and welcome to the forum.

    I am sorry that you are experiencing these symptoms. I have tagged our medical professional in this post @Giada Frontino.

    I have had sharp pains before on the side of my head near my temple and they come and go at times but never found out what they were.

    Hopefully we can give you some suggestions to help you.

    Have you gone to your GP or have had any types of testing done?

    Dear @Kevint18777

    I can understand how this pulsating feeling at the temple has been worrying you. I would surely recommend monitoring your blood pressure, especially when these episodes occur. Please explain your symptoms to your GP, so as to understand whether it is actually a type of headache that manifests as throbbing at the temples or whether you need further investigations.

    Kind regards,

    Giada Frontino
