Deep or Surface?: Headaches deep inside the head may be different than surface headaches. Usually deep headaches are throbbing or pressure. Surface headaches, especially if 'sharp' or 'stabbing' in my experience tend to be the result of nerve injury/impingement or neck muscle problems. A good history & physical, including an osteopathic hands-on examination might help find the cause & even fix it via manipulation.
