Re: Can neck sprains or pulled back and neck muscles cause headache?
Yep, neck sprain, pinched nerves, herniated discs and torn or damaged muscles can all cause the headaches and chills described. My car hit a deer 3 years ago and I tore the muscle under my left shoulder blade. I threw my arm up to protect my face when the deer landed on my windshield. It took 6 months of my GP Dr. telling me there was nothing wrong before a massage therapist found the muscle damage and 3 trips to her made a big difference. Before seeing her I had neck, shoulder, and headache pain everyday, after I saw her it decreased and finally was (almost) as good as new. It will always bother me if I overdo it--like carrying a backpack, holding the phone between ear and shoulder, etc. So definitely check it out.
