In brief: Many possibilities

The cause depends on many factors, but it could be a physical nerve injury or compression (occipital neuralgia) or other neurological condition.
Keep a log of the timing, duration, location, and severity of these episodes and take the log with you to your primary care physician, who may/may not refer you to a neurologist. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003206.htm
