In brief: Find cause of the HA
Actually, the most common cause (85%) of headaches come out of the neck and are associate with muscle tension, cervical joint, ligament or disc problems.
The secondary ha can be very severe at times and can have migraine-like features when un-treated. These are not true migraines and will not respond fully to "migraine" meds. Talk to your doc about treatment options especially to your neck.
