Different people describe their headaches in different ways, so a conversation and exam with the doctor is needed. One possibility is occipital neuralgia, a distinct type of headache with piercing, throbbing, or electric-shock-like chronic pain in the upper neck, the back of the head, and behind the ears, usually on one side of the head. There are also other causes of throbbing headaches.
