I recommend consulting a neurologist to determine the cause of your symptoms and get treatment. Are they a migraine equivalent, neuralgia pains or inflammation of the temporal artery? Appropriate testing will be done.

Agree with Dr Colantino, as no rationale to experience what appears to be migraine events, when numerous OTC and prescription meds are available to prevent the process. Yes, make an appointment to see a neurologist.
