"Electric Shock" type pain in my scalp!

I too have TN for about 10 years, it is controlled by medicine. Two days ago, out of the blue, I started getting an intense sharp pain on my scalp a couple inches behind my right ear. Sometimes it is every 4-5 seconds and other times it has more minutes in between! I don’t know what’s going on! It is like my TN has turned around and is going away from my jaw. Any suggestions as to what is going on would be appreciated!

Ice pic migraines, literally feels like someone is stabbing me in the skull for a few seconds then stops then moves to another spot on my skull, sometimes the side of my face goes numb then shoots down into my neck and shoulder. If it lasts too long I get a shot at the docs or ER.

I have this type of pain on both sides of my head in the back. Was diagnosed with occipital neuralgia. I get shots to block these nerves every three months. Relief lasts about that long for me.
