Hello again,
I was waiting for your reply.
I noticed you did not see the info request & went offline.
I am sending the answer so that you can see it when you come on line.
If you have any query after reading it, please ask.
The symptoms of sharp, short lasting pain can be due to ice pick headache.
It is usually felt near eye & in the temple.
This can last less than a minute.
The pain can be intense.
This type of headache can be related to temporal arteritis, migraine.
If it is limited to one side, migraine can be a possibility.
However, your pain is on both sides
It can also be related to anxiety & stress.
The exact cause of ice pick headache is not yet known.
Ice pick headache goes away in many cases without treatment.
I would advise to take an examination by doctor to get it confirmed & to exclude any other cause.
Indomethacin can be helpful in relieving it.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
