Muscle Spasm: The description of your symptoms sounds like a muscle spasm in your upper neck. The brain subconsciously contracts the para vertebral muscles to prevent perceived spinal injury.

I : I agree with dr fowler. In particular, what you describe is typical for a concussion, but you should be checked to be sure that you don't have a more serious kind of injury such as a subdural hematoma or a contusion.

Headache in different spots-behind eyes, above temple, in back/down back of neck. Had 2CTscans recent for head injury. Would they have seen a tumor?
Concussion: Some people may have a post-concussive/traumatic headache. If the headache is accompanied by other symptoms (tinnitus, difficulty concentrating, irritability) then you might have post-concussion syndrome. Improvement in symptoms is based on many factors including severity and location of the concussion. See a neurologist for evaluation. http://www.webmd.com/brain/post-concussion-syndrome ...Read more
