Ice pick headache: Hard to tell, although serious problems do not normally let up, and ice pick headaches do. The ice pick headache normally only lasts seconds during any one episode. http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/neurology_neurosurgery/centers_clinics/headache/conditions/primary_stabbing_headache.html
