Re: throbbing headache at the back of my head and neck

I had those too. They scared me so bad I made my dr. order an MRI. Turns out they're tension headaches, called Occiptal Tension Headache. I went to a chiropractor for months and also took Skelaxin. Are the muscles in your neck and shoulders tight? If they are, that's what you have!!!!!!

All the best,

Melanie

Then it's time to get a 2nd opinion. Maybe this time try a Neurologist, one that specializes in headaches/migraines. They are usually found at Headache Clinics.
