Needs investigation: You need to check with your pcp, who should check your medical history, family history and any risk factors. You will possibly need ct or MRI brain to rule out any organic pathology. You also may have some withdrawal headache from the alcohol, or tension headache. It's important to know what alleviates the headache and what makes it worse as well. Hope you feel better.

New headache: Headaches can be a concerning symptom and can have many causes. Some are deserving of emergent treatment. Warning signs are chronic headaches that suddenly change in quality or intensity, multiple headaches a week, new onset headaches that affect one's ability to function, associated vomiting, associated dizziness/double vision/neck ache/fever/weakness, or the need to take daily pain medication.

Neuralgia: Your location may fit the anatomy of the greater occipital nerve, and could be a problem coming from where the neck and base of skull come together. Alternatively, this may be referred pain from neck arthritis. Focal occipital headaches may also be seen in thoracic outlet syndrome. Get a physical exam and then appropriate therapy.

Daily twitching eyelid on left side with headache over eye that comes and goes. Sometimes neck pain or pain on back of head also. Eye is dry also.

Daily twitching eyelid on left side with headache over eye that comes and goes. Sometimes neck pain or pain on back of head also. Eye is dry also.

No simple answer: The most common cause of achy pain around the eye that I see, comes from irritation of some nerves in the upper neck near the base of the skull. When they are irritated, there may be a tender spot to pressure over them in the neck but the body may be most aware of the pain felt around and behind the eye - called referred pain. For this particular cause, tratment must be delivered to the neck.

Definitely!: Time to see your doctor if you are experiencing this myriad of symptoms related to your acute sinusitis, so you can get some relief. The sinuses are located behind the cheeks (maxilla), above the eyes (frontal), midline and deep into the back of the nose toward the brain (ethmoid, sphenoid). So, the referred pain pattern as these areas get congested is throughout the head, face, neck.

Is tramadol effective for headache (back of head) and neck pain (tension). or would a muscle relaxer be more effective?

Is tramadol effective for headache (back of head) and neck pain (tension). or would a muscle relaxer be more effective?

Tramadol: Tramadol is a rather unique analgesic drug that is indicated for moderate to moderately severe pain, headache and neck pain included. Tramadol is not technically classified as an opioid analgesic. Instead, it is classified as a centrally acting synthetic analgesic compound and therefore is not a scheduled narcotic drug.
