Pain in the lower right back of the head

Hi, I don't know if this is the right place to ask this or anything, but I've been having stabbing headaches in the back of my head at in the bottom right (Just above where it joins to the neck behind the ear?) for about two years now.
They vary in severity and length, but are always in the same place with the exact same kind of pain and make it really difficult to hold my head up sometimes.
I've been to the opticians and they found nothing wrong with my eye, and I tried the doctors who suspected it was down to my menstrual cycle and put me on the contraceptive pill, but it did no good.
They're never around a specific time, just quite randomly but are worsened by heat and light, so the summer is a problem, ahaha.
I was wondering if anyone had any idea what could be causing it and if I should be concerned at all?

Thank you (:

Re: Pain in the lower right back of the head

Have your potassium checked. I get low potassium headaches in the same place. Anything below a "3" is too low.
