See your doctor: Unfortunately the location of headache is rarely, if ever, diagnostic.

ADisdainForMigraine: Migraine? How do you know? I'll just assume you have severe headaches for now.

If the usual over-the-counter medications haven't helped or just help for a while, you need to see a doc. A month is a long time to suffer like that. ...Read more

Suffered whip lash in my neck I had stiffness and pain for three days I've had headaches every day since and a crackling sound in back of neck and head?

Recovering from anemia after miscarriage. I have been getting painful headaches every day in the back of my head and neck. Is this normal? How long?

See below: Headaches are not normal. The cause is not easy to determine without additional history and physical examination. These may be due to tension and one way of getting around tension is by exercise. You may wish to start exercising, first thing in the morning.
