Pressure in back of left side of head

I have been having sharp throbbing sensations in the back of my left lower part of my head, which actually feels 'warm' when it all the sudden comes 'on'. I feel it coming on generally when I turn my head to the left suddenly. The last epsiode happened as I was looking back to grab my seatbelt over my left shoulder. It lasts usually 10-15 seconds, it makes me do a double take, and then its over. This last episode scared me because It almost caused me to black out for a few seconds. It is tender to the touch and a 'warm' feeling afterwards.

This has been happening on and off for years, but just quite recently getting stronger in intensity and havin a couple of events a month now.

I Would appreciate any advice.
