Suggest treatment for sharp temple pain

Monday I started getting sharp intervals of pain in my right temple and head. At one point the wind hurt my face. Tuesday through Saturday(today) I get the pains like shock pulses every several minutes lasting a couple seconds. They put me in years. Eating, talking, the rain, and sometimes me doing nothing causes them. In had sinus surgery in January unsure if this has anything to do with it. I m just in a lot of paid. And unsure as to what to do.

u seems to have facial pain secondary to Trigeminal Neuralgia.

It don't have to do with sinus surgery...
