    Sharp right side headache of one or two seconds

    Hi. Yes, lately I've been getting very sudden [one or two second> sharp pains mostly on my right side of my head about half way to the top of my head above the ear.. I attribute them to either stress or a jaw or eye or neck pain or maybe even dryness in my sinuses. There might be other reasons I am not aware of such as stress or teeth aches. I have not ever had headaches lasting longer that one or two seconds and have rarely had any headaches in my life of any severity. They seem to be in a very localized area and not spread out. It takes about as long as I can say ,"Ouch!" and then they are gone. It occurs maybe only once or twice in a day and then not again for several days or even the next week. I live in Tucson so I am thinking it is caused by the dryness in the air. I do get neck tension so that might might be it. John
