In brief: See below
This is a very common pattern we see in persons who have problems with the uppermost part of the neck.
It can be from arthritis in the neck, a pinched nerve in the neck or even chronic muscle tension although usually the deeper structures such as the bones, joints and ligaments often are the cause of the muscle tension. In some people with certain posture patterns, the muscles are responsible.

In brief: Occipital Neuralgia
Most likely occipital neuralgia but could be cluster headaches or temporal arteritis.
History of onset and frequency of your headaches would help make the diagnosis. If this is a brand new set of symptoms, i would suggest that you see a doctor right away. Occipital neuralgia has a number of treatments. Cluster headaches are more difficult, temporal arteritis can cause blindness.
