There are a variety of nerves running along the sides of your head/face. Any burning, cold, tingling, painful jolt, or crawling sensation could be the result of improper stimulation of these nerves = parasthesia. If this is a recurring sensation or you have strange sensations in multiple areas, it might be time to see a neurologist. They can do nerve testing and determine the underlying cause.

Your head pains could be triggered by problems in jaws, dentition, sinuses, but could also wonder about Occipital Neuralgia, or Migraines. Headaches which vary in location are not consistent with brain tumor. Yes, as mentioned, a neurologist would be an excellent resource.
