Re: severe pain base of skull

I suggest that you make an appointment to see a neurologist. The pains and discomfort you describe sound like they have a significant neurological component to them. Have you been involved in an accident (like an auto accident or serious fall) that resulted in whiplash or other trauma to your neck or head? Much of what you are describing is consistent with what doctors refer to as "cervicogenic headache," which is pain than originates in the neck or base of the skull - and generally involves the cervical (neck) vertebrae and/or cervical sensory nerves.
