Dr. Robert Grieco answered:

When I bend over (less often stood up) I get this strange sensation at the top of my neck (right side) or behind the ear towards the back of head?

Hard to say.

Head
I would need a bit more info. The sensation is it feel like spinning or being off balance? Do you get light headed like you are going to faint? Is it more pain in the neck that you feel? Is it tender to touch? Let us know.

73 yr old. Feeling pain that comes&goes behind right ear and neck (but not in the ear) and shooting pain on the bottom right side of head for a week?

Neck arthritis

It sounds like it may be secondary to arthritis in the neck. Have it evaluated if it is severe enough.

My son bumped his head on edge of table. Hit behind right ear noticed red spot on right eye 2 hours later. Is a ct necessary ?

Can't Tell

Head-eye
Why don't you have him evaluated if you think there is significant trauma to the head? How old is he? Did you see the injury? Could the eye have been struck? Any change in mental status? Minor bumps don't usually require any treatment except for ice or maybe acetaminophen. Anything more significant warrants a proper evaluation .

Lymph node

It may have been a cyst or lymph node, if it is not painful and you have no other symptoms, it will subside on its own and may take weeks, don't touch it.

I have been having this pressure / ache in my head right side above right ear feels like a bubble is about to pop been going on about a week not really painful at all sometimes it moves around my head?

See doctor for it

Pain
Most bubbles don't move or pop in the head. Since the pain keeps moving around, and so does the bubble, you need to have this examined by your doctor to see what it is, especially if it''s been going on for over a week. Most cysts don't move.
