Headache; lump: Many headaches are due to tension/stress, which can manifest as muscles spasm, especially of the neck & shoulder muscles. The lump/knot u feel may just be a "knotted" muscle. Moist heat, an NSAID (advil/motrin/ aleve/etc), & muscle stretching can help relieve the muscle spasm. Therapeutic massage of the neck helps, too. If not better, see fp for evaluation. ...Read more
