This heacache has lasted ALL day. It was gradual. I woke up with it but the pain got worse over the course of the day. I took one Aleve, but it didn't help much.

Headache: A steady headache, nonthrobbing, generalized, associated with neck and shoulder pain is very characteristic of a tension muscle contraction headache. You could add Tylenol to the Aleve for pain relief. Massage, muscle relaxant and stress reduction all help.
