Hi Amanda!  


This could possibly be ice pick headaches, but it could also be one of many other things. Nobody can diagnose via the Internet. You really need to go to a doctor for a diagnosis to be sure.

Good Luck!

I don't have an answer for you, but this happens to me too and on the same side. I would also like to know the answer.
