In brief: Neuralgia

Such sharp,jabbing pains in that area are often due to neuralgia which is an irritable superficial nerve.
This is more of a nuisance than anything serious and usually resolves without any specific treatment. However if symptoms persist or worsen, see your physician for evaluation.
