Brief Answer:
Consider visiting a neurologist...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I am not sure if you had similar headaches in the past (not just 3 days). What other symptoms (if any) are associated?

Though the symptoms are not typical of any known serious medical illness, Ice pick headache is the close possibility. If headaches persist, I will recommend you visit a neurologist for evaluation.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.
