Shooting pain in head
I got a shooting pain in my head (right side above the ear and going through till neck) last week which lasted for over a minute. I am getting similar pains once every 3/4 years since last 20/25 years. It used last for 5/10 seconds. This time it was over a minute. Is it migraine? Do I need to get an MRI done? Do I need to consult a Neuro? Kindly advice.
