Localized Headache On Back Of Head

Has anyone here experienced localized constant head pain on the back of their heads near the top? It really didn't feel like a headache but just this pain on the back top of my head on one side and woke me up several times from sleep and was constant the whole night. it feels better today so i am assuming it was not an aneurysm or anything serious because it would have gotten worse from what i've read. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I get these kinds of headaches from Lexapro (ssri for depression), except they are lower, but in the back of my head. I read somewhere, where this is one of the side affects of Lexapro. Hope you get better soon

I take Lexapro but have never heard that! WOW maybe I need to take a look at a new med??

I get headaches like you described too. If it is on one side more than the other could it be a migraine??

i am not on any meds so it's not that but i did go see the doctor the next day because it was so weird and he just said "well, it's gone now right?" and i said yes and that was the end of the conversation.
