Tension headache: Evening neck pain and headache is fairly common in individuals who work on computer terminals. It is associated with abnormal neck posture. Another consideration is your work environment. Are there any allergens, dust, fragrance or other factors that may be causing nasal congestion and tension headache. Attention to posture & allergens may resolve it.

Stress likely: Your neck is the crux of stress and constant movement. Most everything anyone does at any job necessitates bending your head down to look, type, study or use your hands. Neck stiffness and headache occuring at the end of a day generally points to overuse or stress motion. Try to unwind at the end of your day doing gentle neck and shoulder muscle releases and rehydrate & you may see improvement.
