Facets: There are multiple potential causes, among them, Symptomatic facet joints are often the cause of posterior based neck pain and headaches and are often under appreciated on imaging studies even such as an MRI or ct scan. Consider asking to be referred to an interventional pain specialist where you may be a candidate for radio frequency ablation, a no surgical treatment for facet mediated pain.
