I am an 18 year old male. I am fairly active. For three to four months now, I have been experiencing random sharp pains behind my right ear on the back of my head. This has also been followed by increased head pressure and regular throbbing headaches. Few weeks, these symptoms only occur a handful of times, and others, it is a daily occurrence. When these sharp pains occur, they last for about 5 to 20 seconds and can be pretty shocking, making me stop what I am doing at the time. Usually, lying down in bed will make it better I have noticed. I am not sure if this is relevant, but I have had chronic upper back pain since last year, and jaw discomfort as I grind my teeth at night. I am unsure if I need to visit the doctor. I just want to get some feedback.

Thanks for replying. It has been going on for a maximum of five months. I feel the pain in the same spot every time. I would describe the pain as a heaviness, throbbing, and like an electric current. The severity is moderate sometimes, but mostly mild. It is episodic and, on average it takes two to five minutes to go away. On some weeks, it occurs every day, multiple times in the day, and on others, it occurs only a few times the whole week. My general mood and sleep pattern is alright. I have noticed it gets triggered when I am tired, but it does not occur only when I am tired. Also, I have noticed that I had to pop my ears more often, but did not experience any discharge or impairment. I am not on any medications. I take 200 mg Ibuprofen occasionally for my back and headaches.
