Based pn your description if you have sharp stabbing pain and if comes for few seconds than it is likely related to ice pick headaches. If it is consistent and constant than it is related to migraine headaches. Usually ice pick headaches are responsive to medication called indomethacin. While migraines are responsive to medication like imitrex.

Please get back to me if you have any further questions, Thank you.
