Brain Lightning

brainlightning001I think my brain might explode…

So for the last month and a half, I’ve been getting these really random, really quick headaches that shoot up the left side of my head into my brain and then disappear. As such, I’ve labeled these mini-headaches “brain lightning.”

This is super-F’n-annoying because I never, ever get headaches. Like seriously, I NEVER get headaches, hell I just had my first ice cream headache last summer. [Note: It was NOT cool.]

So basically I’ll just be hanging out doing whatever I’m doing and then BAM I’ve got this huge pain that starts sorta back by my left ear and then shoots up through the temple and kind of up above my eye and then—POOF—it’s gone.

I did a little bit of research and apparently these bad-boys are called ”ice pick headaches.”

It seems that they’re pretty harmless, just annoying.

Anyway, I wanted to share this with you, my Faithful Readers, on the off-chance that my brain does—in fact—explode at random and I’m unable to continue sharing the details of my rather dull life with all ya’ll.

I don’t want ya’ll to think I just abandoned you or anything, that’d just be rude.



  1. You know, Web MD is just a name for a website, right Jeremiah? It’s not an actual indication that the Internets can has an MD.

    You should talk about this with a real live doctor, like the ones you get access to by paying for health insurance in your weekly paycheck. Because this sounds a little scary. Maybe it’s “ice pick headaches.” Or maybe it’s a brain tumor incidentally caused by the chemicals in all the energy drinks you consume.

    I don’t know. The internets don’t know. But a doctor might!


  2. ditto what M said!


  3. I hate to sound like a busy-body, but I agree with katie and M.


  4. Jeremiah, I get these all the time. You’re fine. I’m not dead…yet.
