Some patients who have migraine have an aura before the pain, in which the tongue is affected, so it is not unknown that the tongue is affected with some headaches. Your symptoms, as you say, do not fit in with the definition of ice-pick headaches, but you may have a weird variety – we are all different, and our bodies react in different ways. If you can pinpoint the area, then it shouldn’t be difficult to administer preventive treatment, so that you don’t have to suffer such a severe headache again.
