Shooting Sharp pain Left Side of Head

Recently I have been experiencing sharp shooting pain on the left side of my head about an inch behind and above my ear. The pain happens in time intervals sharp shooting pain lasts for 2 seconds and goes away and starts back up every 2-3 seconds. These intervals lasts from 30 secs to a minute. I had this pain before when I was playing baseball for 2 teams during the summer. I woke up one morning (back in 2003) and was experiencing extreme sharp pain in the same spot lasting the majority of the day, I went to the doctor and I was completely dehydrated and had 2 liters of IV put into me. Later that day the pain left. Now its been several years and the pain is back. I'm hydrated, well rested, and yet this pain is to the point where I'm concerned it might be something serious. I can press on the exact spot where the pain is and it feels like its bruised, but no dark swolleness. (hair cut really short) I know you can't diagnose over the internet, but are the symptoms similar to any conditions your aware of?
