In brief: Muscles and Nerves

Typically either side of neck and head are provided sensation by nerves that supply them exiting out of the neck and head.
Muscles also lying in that area may be the issue as well. If there is a history of neck pain that should be evaluated since there could be arthritis, nerve impingement or herniated disks involved. History of head trauma could also result in this pain as well.
