Head-pain-filter: 50 year-old woman suffers from pain both internal and external, in the right side of her head above her ear

The pain feels as a sudden prick that goes from the small circle to the big one.
Externally, the skin in the area feels painful to touch, similar to the oversensitivity after a burn. This dissapears and appears along with the internal pain.
The pain is not permanent. When it happens she can get dizzy if she opens her eyes. There are days when it happens more frequently than others.
She will go to the doctor in the near future, but before she would like to have an idea about what it could be.
