Ice pick headache

Apparently, "ice pick headache" is a thing.

For a month I've been getting sudden intense pains in my head that last one second and then vanish. I consulted Dr. Google and came up with the malady of ice pick headache. It certainly describes just what I've been feeling, although mine is at the base of my skull and the web description says they're typically behind one eye.

Dr. Google also says there isn't much one can do about these; you just have to put up with them.

Anyone else have this?
