Default Sharp Lightning Pain

Hi! I wanted to know if anyone has a solution/answer. I was born with a port wine stain covering my right cheek, ear, chin, lip, and neck. I've had around 30 laser surgeries from birth to age 18 when I decided to stop. Recently, I've begun experiencing a very sharp, lightning like pain that goes up through my neck and cheek. It only lasts a few seconds and occurs maybe once a day. I do have a family health history of aneurysms. Has anyone had this pain? No where it's coming from? How to treat?

Hi and welcome,

I have not ever heard of this associated with PWS... not that it's not possible, just I haven't heard it. I would go ahead and make an appointment with your physician and get it checked into.
