Hello

 

I am Doctor Thomas, double board certified doctor US doctor in internal medicine and integrative medicine. I am a clinician of over 20 year’s experience. I will start by asking you a question or by giving you an answer based on your information provided so far. I will be here to follow up with any further questions or concerns you might have.

Any new headache or change in an old headache should be examined immediately.

 

In addition, with the visual changes, sharp stabbing pain, and pain in the teeth or JAW this can be giant cell arteritis, and this needs to be considered by your doctor immediately.

 

This can result in blindness if not treated.

 

Aneurysm and other neurological problems are more common with sharp stabbing main. Don't treat this at home; see your doctor today.

 

Or go to the ER.

 

Use reply to let me know if you have further questions. [click reply to expert].
