Headaches : Headaches (and stiff neck) can have many causes and can be very tricky to diagnose and treat. If you are not experiencing relief with your current treatment, you may want to see a doctor that specializes in headaches - usually a neurologist. Ask you doctor for a referral to someone they know and trust in your area.
