In brief: Migraine?
Some varieties of migraine exhibit sharp, icepick like pains, for a few seconds, but other variants may have intense pains lasting 30-60 minutes.
Best to seek medical attention, as most of these problems can readily respond to a variety of medicines.

The pain may be coming from muscles (probable) and/or joints in front of the ear. It may be that the muscles has knots which are causing the pain. If the pain is worse when moving you jaw it may be muscles, but it is best to check with your dentists. Is there any clicking or popping when you open or close? If so, then your joint is not functioning properly.
