Back of the Head Pains

Recently during a group military training exercise, I developed a throbbing pain in the back of my head. Specifically it started after we ran about 2 miles, we rested for about 7 minutes and went straight to push up exercises. The instructors encouraged us to do as many push ups as possible in a span of 1 minute. Me, being a showoff, did my push ups a little too fast and hard, when I got to the 50th push up, a very painful throbbing sensation erupted in the back of my head. I had to clench my teeth to bear the pain.

Now whenever I do exercises that require me to move my head back and forth or up and down, or even while running, I feel that throbbing pain. Sometimes even when I sit too. When I feel it, I touch the area of pain and I can feel it pulsating. I'm concerned that I might have ruptured a vein in my head. Any ideas on what may be causing this?
