Pressure On The Back Of My Head
Head pressure: Pressure there on bending forward can be due to mild strain/inflammation of the musculature or ligaments in your neck which attach to the occiput (back of your skull). If that's the only time you experience the symptom and you have good range of motion of your neck, it doesn't appear to be a serious issue like a bulging disk or arthritic spur.

I have been experiencing headaches / pressure on the back of my head after doing pull ups. I checked my blood pressure and its 134/69. Please help?
Blood pressure OK: A single BP of 134/69 is not of concern if you took the reading when in pain or feeling stressed. At 25yo, repeated BP at rest should have a higher number less than 125. Headaches after exercise can occur for a number of reasons, including muscle strain, tension headaches, and migraines. Other more serious causes are extremely rare. If the headache persists or recurs frequently, see your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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!
