Hello. Thank you for posting.

There can be many causes for left temple pain (see the resource below). Among them ice pick headaches. Ice pick headaches are sharp, stabbing pains occurring as a single stab or as a series of stabs, occurring mostly in the eye and orbit, temple, or parietal regions. Stabs last a few seconds, and may recur throughout the day, usually at irregular intervals. This headache type is not well understood, even though it occurs more commonly in migraine sufferers.
