Are you certain your doctor told you the pains were "new lesions"? Generally lesions by themselves don't cause pain. Their destruction of the nerve path might cause pain, but it's not like the lesion is a "sore", and so "painful". I'd probably be back asking the doctor about that.
Shelley mentioned icepick headaches, a form of migraine. That seems much more likely.
At any rate, if indeed you're experiencing that several times a day, and with the severity you describe, you should be back to your doctor and follow-up with it. It's not a typical MS symptom.
I am so sorry you are going through this. I really don't know what else to say, but that I am thinking about you and wish for you the best possible outcome.
Please keep posting to let us know how you are doing. People really care about you on this forum.

My word! What a situation you are in. Nothing is untreatable these days though and you have prayers from everyone here and I'm sure you have loads from family and other freinds to boost your strength. Give it up to God and He will get you through it. Just know that you have a good doctor to have gone the extra step in your dx. As much as it is scary, it is better when they are willing to look beyond their own dx for something new. Mayo is the best, so you will be in good hands there.
All my prayers to you!
