sharp pains in my temple area

Hi. I do not suffer from any type of headaches or have seasonal allergies. The last two days, I have has quick, sharp pains on the left front temple area of my head. They are sudden and last maybe 3-5 seconds. Sometimes longer.  They come out of now where. I am not dizzy or anything.

Do you have an idea of what it could be ?

Hi, this could be neuralgia. Try cold compressions, if symptoms appear again and persist for longer duration, do take opinion of neurologist. Here is some quoted literature
“There are some things that a patient can do to minimize the frequency and intensity of TN attacks:
Apply ice packs or any readily available source of cold to the area of pain. Cold often numbs the area and will reduce the pain.
Warming packs, wrapped in a towel to protect one's skin, can also provide relief as they stimulate blood flow to the area they are placed upon.
Get adequate rest in normal rest cycles.
Manage your stress well and keep stress levels low. When you feel a TN attack coming on, try to relax immediately.
Practice healthy living principles such as diet and exercise.
Avoid foods that may act as nerve stimulants, such as coffee, tea, and foods that are high in sugar.
Maintain adequate hydration and electrolyte levels at all time”.
