Headache with a spark

has anyone ever had head pains or as my doctor says if you have head pains its a headache ,no matter where it hurts or what the pain feels like, its still a headache,anyway my question, I get cluster headaches as im sure a lot of you do too,but have you ever seen sparks like in the corner of your eye or felt a stactic electric feeling in your head,just wondered,this is like my third time,

Not really…but sometimes the back of my head gets hot which is kind of wierd.

When I get my migraines I see what I call strobe lights in my left peripheral vision. They also call this an arua. It is not uncommon with migraines. Over the 37 years this has happen with every migraine. Mine usually disappear once the migraine is full blown.
Hope this helps

thats just what happened ,had it for three days and those spots ,or lights showed up ,never happened before, got worried,thank you) mine did go away too,that did help :slight_smile: Caroline

You are welcome Caroline glad it helped. There have been times when my migraines lasted days (once was six days).

Thanks Stacey,thats what happened,ya know,its never happened but one other time a few months ago,and then the other day,but it lasted for like 10 minutes this past time,didntknow what it was,thanks :slight_smile: I DONT FEEL LIKE IM GOING NUTS NOW…HAHA

I have that happen sometimes and this headache has lasted for 14 months…every single day. But I also have to add that I have seizures also and when I am about to have one sometimes I will see little flashes of light out of the corner of one of my eyes. Its werid and I also feel the electrical thing you are talking about. Do you have seizures on a regular basis? Mine happen about an average of 2 times a week and always at night…which is so STRANGE that is the only time. anyone else notice a strange pattern like that?

Hi Brittany,never had a seizure, but have had the electrial thing happen with the sparks, all new,was hoping to get some responces from all of you so I know whats up,hope its just part of a headache thing:)The electrical thing happened at night for me as well,the sparks were during the day for three days,the electrical thing i felt in my head ,I could see even with my eyes closed,was crazy!!would start my my ear and run to the top of my head ,happened afew nights in a row,and now the sparks,thanks Brittany for your help:)

Hi, Iv’e had these electrostatic things happen before, never known what it was, feels like a fuzzy wave pass through my head!?

Thanks Simon for responding to this,Thursday I see my nuro about it and will ask him whats up,ill post after I see him and let you guys know what he says:) Caroline

Hi Caroline, yes the sparks sound familiar to me. I tend to get them when I’m tired or if I move my head too fast. I also get dizzy then.
No idea how to describe the headaches, maybe like drilling or a fast train or plane going through my head. Noisy.
I have a blind spot in my right eye that has been there for as long as I can remember, it’s only like one pixel that doesn’t transmit the picture but it causes a constant blur. No electric buzz as far as I can recall.
If this happens again maybe it would be good to ask your specialist about it?

I agree,I see him on Thursday:) Thank you!!

I’ve had the ‘sparks’ thing before and was told it was a migraine. Weird symptom, huh.

Hi Catherine,I think your rite,seems I get it jus before my migraines or just after,it kinda lets me know one is coming,cant wait to see the doc on Thursday,this spark stuff is completely new ,Ive had migraines for life ,just never lit up ones,with sparks,ill let you all know what the doc thinks on Thursday:)
