Too many issues: This sounds like too many different symptoms. I don't think they're all caused by one condition. Although a mental disorder like depression could play a factor. See your doctor for a thorough evaluation. ...Read more

The right back side of my neck and head hurts. When i pick anything up it feels like a painful string being pulled. I received a flu shot about 3 hour?

Timing: Which came first? Flu shot or neck pain? You describe very nicely neck muscle spasm which occurs in many different circumstances. Unless your flu shot was injected in your neck, a connection is unlikely. Neck sprain is by far the commonest source of those symptoms, but certainly not the only possibility. Flu symptoms are usually more diffuse, rather than on one side of the neck. ...Read more

Pain : Pain in the back of the head that is intermittent and "electrical" is often caused by occipital neuralgia. The occipital nerve comes up past a little notch in the mastoid bone behind the ear. You may have injured the nerve when you had your neck injury. I agree with the other doctors who suggested that you get checked out. Occipital neuralgia can be treated. Check with your primary care doctor who will probably send you to a neurologist. ...Read more

My head hurts all over with throbbing pain in the back and on the sides, my neck hurts so bad too! plus my ears have kinda been hurting also.

Neck causes of pain: Much more history is needed to diagnose your problem. Sudden onset, fever/chills, or vision changes are serious and need immediate evaluation. Once those are ruled out, many headache causes come from the neck, called "cervicogenic headaches". Xrays/mri/physical exam/fluoroscopic injections can diagnose the problem. The scm muscle can cause headaches and ear pain. ...Read more
