Last Saturday I felt some pain near my right ear. I felt the area and discovered a pea sized lump which I could shift around. It hurt to touch as well. It was directly above my ear hidden in my hair. It was there for about 3 days. During the three days I began to gradually get a headache. But only on my right side It was a pain as if someone was pressing on my brain and it was located near the center of my scalp but still to the right side. The pain gradually became stronger. By Thursday night I was also experiencing dizziness for about an hour. When I sleep the pain goes away. But it's there all day. Since Thursday the pain has gradually started to disappear but I can still sense it. Today the pain is all but gone except that now I am experiencing extreme tenderness on my crown area. I should also include that during the headaches every once in a while I would experience a shooting pain in my jaw on the right side. Also Thursday after I was dizzy my pinky would get some shooting pains.

A little background: I'm a 20 year old female who has never experienced anything more than a sprained pinky. I do still have my bottom wisdom teeth. We also got a new puppy and it has been very stressful. My mother has migraines often as well.

I'm asking everyone here about their opinion because I freaked myself out into thinking I have an aneurysm or brain tumor by searching the internet. Since it's been a week I'm going to go ahead and say I don't have those. Thanks for your help in advance.

  • I should also mention that from time to time my right forearm feels heavy. Also when I look up at the sky my neck aches a bit but I think that's from sleeping funny.

  • Seems like a electrosensitivity to me but it's a little bit strange that the pain stopped. However, I would recommend to see a doctor, maybe you start getting migraine or have any other problems.
