I had those kinds of headaches too, I believe they call them ice pick headaches.  In my case they were caused by a brain tumor so I would get it checked as soon as possible because its not much fun to deal with now, though the headaches are gone, the side effects of the tumor are still lingering.  Good luck and I hope that is not the case for you!
