Neck spasm, stress: Temples are a referral area for tension and stiffness in the neck. If you are working for long periods at a computer or leaning over projects, this can cause tightness of the cervical paraspinal muscles that can radiate to either or both temples, even leading to tenderness of the temples. If headache occurs at day's end, likely related to day's stress, if happens in am, may relate to poor sleep.See 2 more doctor answers
