In brief: Tendonitis/neuritis

Chronic pain back of head, occipital region, can derive from expanding mass within brain or from chronic tendonitis and/or neuritis in region of superior trapezium muscle insertions on occiput.
Neurologists can effectively differeniate, prescribe, refer, treat. Local steroid injections into tender sites can be effective. Imo chronic irregular postures head & neck can be primary underlying cause.
