Do you clench?: The pressure in the back of your head and ear ringing could be the result of clenching your teeth, usually due to stress. Stress can also cause lack of focus and confusion.

That is strange now.: Since it was so brief, not painful, & didn't cause any apparent damage...then, perhaps it was just a momentary "something or other" and will never happen again. Do you have a headache history of any sort? Is the period slated to come in the next 24-48 hrs? Just keep an eye on things...even though it's in the back of your head! LOL!
