In brief: High cervical nerves

"pinching" of the high cervical nerves can cause a similar condition.
Would need a bit more information.

In brief: Muscular or Nerves

Back and head pain can range in causes from muscle spasm to a "slipped disc.
" the location of the back and head pain would be important to assess to help determine the possible underlying cause. A more detailed story would help your doctor create a more concise list of possible causes.
