Hello.

The sharp pains may be a part of migraine, but usually the migraine pains are not restricted a particular area as has been described by you. It will be helpful if you could mention if you have any other symptoms of migraine (nausea, redness of eye, etc)

Does your pain increase on moving the neck ? If yes, then it may be due to a pinched nerve in the neck muscles.

There are a number of other possibilities like temporal arteritis, trigeminal neuralgia, etc.

I would recommend that you see a Neurologist and get the scalp pains examined.
