Convergence: Because the nerves in the neck connect with the nerves in the head at the base of the brain, painful information can be sent to the neck when the head hurts. This is known as pain referral. This does not mean there is a probllem in the neck. This is also why the sinuses often hurt with migraine headaches. It is not a sinus problem, just excited nerves from the headache. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Does occipital neuralgia cause tingling and numb feeling around one side of forehead and temple and front of head?
Very Similar: Cluster and migraine seem to have a vascular component that starts them off whereas the tension type headaches are triggered by muscle overactivity. Surprisingly, the treatments for all of these headaches are quite similar with the tension-type headache's treatment more directed at muscle tension. Prevention is generally the most successful way to deal with any headache. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Usually No: It sounds like you have a tumor (usually a meningioma or schwannoma) attached to the trigeminal nerve. This can cause the facial pain that you note. When surgery is done for this, the neurosurgeon can usually peel the tumor away from the nerve. Some fibers of the nerve can be sacrificed hopefully with minimal neurologic sequelae. This is a big nerve and it controls facial sensation and chewing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
