Yes Claire, I know exactly what you are talking about......what you described happens to me a couple of times a year also, and like you, it's not something I've ever brought up to my Doctor. It happens in an instant, and is gone just as quickly.....feels like lightening struck, right? Agh. Sure not pleasant to be sure.
This is a daily happening that lasts up to 30 min, and yes, the residual pain is similar, although the top of my head instead of behind my ear. Depending on how many times I cough or sneeze during the day, it can make for some really miserable hours.
I had to laugh and nod my head over this:

be it a masseuse or chiropractor or acupuncturist, make sure it isn't just some old hippie who is hanging out a shingle after meditating on the subject for a few years (sorry, but I actually know a couple of people who really do similar things).
Haa Haa.....you too? Exactly what I want to avoid.
TSM for your feed back.

Munky, this sounds encouraging......thanks for taking the time to respond.

But anyways if he starts having neck pains and headaches now he see's an Acupuncturist for it. He says he feels euphoric afterward, no pain. Ask your Dr about it. Not all of them are good. If you have to pay out of pocket it's really not that expensive.

Ohmygosh Uncle Bob.....that sounds just so, ummm so....reasonable.

The trouble with a Neurologist for diagnosis, is they are also called Neurosurgeons. Shudder.

Doesn't mean they will start chopping if you don't need it...but they may be able to pinpoint the problem and help get it fixed.

Good point PF and UB........I'll have to see if my Primary Dr. will give me a referral and then wait to see if my Ins. will approve a visit to one. I sure know I couldn't do an "out of pocket" to a Neurologist.

My insurance paid for the whole thing AND I got my co-pay back. No surgery and tips to make things better for me. I had a compressed ulnar nerve, quite painful, made my left hand go numb...and I'm left handed.
