Quick Sharp/Stabbing Head Pain

I am a young healthy teenager. For the past 3 days I have been experiencing theses weird “headaches”. It feels like an extremely quick sharp/stabbing pain. Literally one second, like a strike. Sometimes it happens a few times at one time period, sometimes just once. It’s always in the same spot, middle left. I moved 2 weeks ago, so I don’t know if it could be stress or altitude change.

If you grind your teeth at night from stress, it could cause headaches like that. Also, so could nerve issues, including the nerves in the neck. Finally, so could a cracked tooth. If it keeps happening, see a doctor and if no answers, see a dentist.

You might also google "ice pick headache." They are not common to have several days in a row, though.
