Sharp, sudden pain in left side of head

I have a sharp, sudden pain in the left side of my head around my ear. It only last a few seconds and gone, but is right back in a few minutes. Also hurts when I turn my head to the left and at times i may feel a little dizzy.

Hello Dear,
The pain could be due to neuralgia affecting the trigeminal,facial nerves or could be due to migraine..You consult your neurologist and go in for  MRI to know the pathology at present.It could be a referred pain  due to nerve palsy.Also get your blood pressure levels monitored. Unless any investigations are done the cause cannot be known.You should get it evaluated.
