Toddler Short Lasting Head Pain

Recently our baby boy almost 3 started having very short pains in the back and right side of his head. The pain is very short less than 3 seconds, and then he’s perfectly fine as if nothing happened. He has no other symptoms other than we notice he likes scratching his head and arms frequently. We are very concerned and looking for guidance. Is this a primary stabbing headache or is this a symptom of something else. Neurologist recommended magnesium as a start but would like to do MRI, I’m just worried about putting a 3 year old under general anesthesia. I’ve read many case studies about the use of melatonin for PSH. Can someone please help I can barely sleep or eat since these started out of sheer worry. Thanks so much.
