I have sharp pain in my right temple. I have never had migraines before, so what could be causing this?

While I'd love to be able to tell you what these pains are, only a doctor who can review your medical history, discuss your symptoms with you, and examine you, can give you a diagnosis.
You don't menton how long these pains last, but one possibility that comes to mind is ice pick headaches. You can read more about them in Ice Pick Headaches - The Basics.
Please see your doctor and let us know what you find out.
For myself, this type of pain happens often as a result of having trigeminal neuralgia, TMJ, and MPDS, it is a paralyzing kind of pain, wicked headache, but it is a different kind of headache than is the migraine headache that is induced by other stressors. I've found that it is so difficult to avoid the headache ocurring stressors as different types of severe headaches are the result of the facial neuralgia, jaw misalignment, stress levels, strong scents, lights, noise, oncoming rain and humidity levels, hormones, damaged discs and nerves in the neck flaring up, I've learned to identify easily the source, often situations beyond my control. You may wish to consult with a competant neurologist in regards to the severe pains in the temple area, forewarning, they tend not to be sympathetic or understanding, at least not in my experiences. I do hope you find the solution to mngt of the pain and the headaches.
I have sharp pains that come on the right side of my head. My temple, my right ear and even on the top of my head. These pains began about 5 days ago.
I have never had the symptoms before. What is the cause?
