Can a tension headache at the back of the skull and a tender left side of neck be related to slight vertigo when moving head quickly? If not, ideas?

In brief: Tension-type

Headache can develop from episodic Headache.
The clinical presentation of attacks. The headaches are usually bilateral and diffuse and often have tenderness in the cervical muscles (neck), vertigo, dizziness as well as pain in the pericranial muscles. This condition must be professionally managed. Rec.: see orofacial pain/headache specialist.
