Doing exercise sudden onset of pain in back of head and spasm of neck only lasted a couple of minutes then went no other symptons ?

I suspect this: is related to muscle spasm.

Not to worry. There are much more worrisome causes of posterior head pain related to the circulation and blood vessels. If it reoccurs, I would not hesitate to see a Doctor right away ...Read more

You may have also woken during a very specific period of sleep that can cause momentary paralysis when transitioning from sleep to wake, but that wouldn't cause head pain. I would recommend getting assessed by a physician asap with workup to be safe. ...Read more
