In brief: Occiptal Nerves

Consider going to a headache specialist, maybe an occipital nerve block.
There are other nerves above your eyebrow, when blocked relieve pain in forehead. You may also want to take a closer look at your cervical spine and brain with an mri.

After exhausting any medical factors call a dentist and have your posture and TMJ exam. Dental issues are muscular only so rule out medical perpetuating factors first.

Thank you Dr. Burns. I would only add, why not go to the Dentist sooner rather than later.

In brief: Tension possible

Neck related headaches are often tension or stress related.
Would try some massage to see if this helps, if not please see an internist.
