The Lightning Scar Headache

I was innocently sitting at my desk yesterday when a sudden stabbing pain inside my brain caused me to drop my pen and grab hold of my head. Although this is a frequent and seemingly unstoppable occurance, I squeezed my head with all my might, hoping this would somehow stop the monsters in their tracks. Health professionals will have you believe that these ‘Primary Stabbing Headaches’ are the result of faulty nerve signals struggling to do their job in a lesion-infested nervous system. But, I’m pretty convinced that these so called ‘ice pick headaches’ are the cause of pesky little beasts literally jabbing away at the brain with ice picks; what else could possibly be causing that kind of random rascalous pain? Unless…

Have you ever noticed the shocking parallel between the scars in your brain and the scar on Harry Potter’s forehead? There is no denying that there is an uncanny resemblance between these jolts of pain in an MS brain and the pain experienced by Harry through his lightning scar, which, as you’ll all (hopefully) know, was the result of a failed attack by Lord Voldemort. In the ‘Harry Potter’ series, written by J K Rowling, whose mother had Multiple Sclerosis, Harry’s scar causes him excrutiating pain that stops him in his tracks anytime Voldemort is feeling a heightened emotion. The pain is caused by a fragment of Voldemort’s soul, which became trapped within Harry when he was a baby and which is now trying to rejoin its master. Could it be that there is a small piece of Voldemort inside each of our brains and it is actually he that is causing all this havoc?

Now, that’s a thought!

  2. I totally get this and yes it’s such a sudden pain and people look at you as you just sit there pulling a strange face (feel like I do) & holding your head. I’m now going to think of it as ‘he who should not be named’ pain.

  4. Wow that’s so interesting about what you said about Harry Porter. I get those pains in the head too. I wondered if it was to do with my ms. I didn’t used to get them before. Yes, they are shockingly painful! x


    1. I’d been diagnosed about 2 years before I realised the pains were MS related – I had become so used to them that I convinced myself they were normal and that everyone suffered them – oops! x


  5. Sounds like my Trigeminal Neuralgia 😕
