short sharp pains right side of head on top

last night I had some sharp but very short lived pains in my head (like underneath the scalp) that only lasted 5 or 10 seconds.  Today I had some too.  Again not long lived but I thought that was strange.  I have some other health issues with high cholesterol but I am taking a bunch of meds (just added some recently) and take blood pressure medicine.  I am a male, 45.  Any thoughts?  No other symptoms like numbness, confusion, vision (although my close up eyesight has definitely changed in the last say 30-60 days as I now have to wear reading glasses constantly much more than before).

In January I started getting sharp stabbing pain in my right side of my head.  I found out it was called an ice pick headache.  This lasted off and on for 9 weeks and then just disappeared.  I hope I never get them again.   You could google this and see if this is what you were experiencing.  Hope it helps you.

Hi, Thank you for your question. For persistent headaches, possibilities like migrainous, cluster, tension and refractive errors that need to be evaluated thoroughly with the help of a neurologist here. Migraine like headache can be throbbing, one sided of face & head and preceded by aura (starts with blurred vision). Cluster headache may appear as burning, explosive in nature and tear appears from eyes. Tension headache originates with stress and anxiety disorder. Please arrange an appointment with a neurologist right away who will evaluate the further underlying disorders by clinically examine you & ordering MRI or CT scan here that may be the main reasons of your headache attacks & other symptoms and can provide you an appropriate treatment. Hope this information proves helpful to you. Take Care & Regards!!!
