In brief: Rx for ice picks

In brief: Depends on cause

You should see your doctor for an evaluation of this complaint.
Musculoskeletal causes respond well to ice paks, massage, anti-inflammatories. Other more sinister possibilities need to be checked for and treated accordingly. See your doctor soon to discuss this.
