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?
