right side head tenderness and pain

For a couple of weeks I have been having tenderness in the right side of my head from the base of the skull behind my ear and running in a C shape up to my temple.  At times I will get a sharp pain there behind my ear or in my temple that can stop me in my tracs for a couple of seconds.  What could be causing this?

Hello Dear,
                 Your headache could be due to several causes such as migraine,hypertension,cervical spondylosis,stress,anxiety.What is your age?You should see a neurosurgeon and get the cause evaluated.You can take some NSAID to releive the pain.

Thank you for your reply.  I am 49 years old.  I have no medical ins. so try not to get too excited, have to pick and choose what to see the Doc about.  Thank you so much for responding.
