      Hi Pranjul, have you been to your doctor about this yet? If not, I suggest you go as soon as you are able. They should hopefully be able to examine you and help determine what is going on here. I think you also must discuss how stressed and down you feel as a result of this too and that you need some answers.

    I have had a bad headache now for almost 5 weeks. My neck and shoulders ARE sore but that subsides somewhat, however the headache remains. I've been checked by Neuro, ENT and primary even called rheumatologist, all just say a "fibro" headache. Would this type of headache last this long and decrease and increase in pain level? Just trying to find some relief! Thanks.

      Hello Laura Heaches arising from tension in the neck or upper back can persist so long as the tension does, so while you may have days where the tension isn't aggravated to the extent where you feel muscle pain in these areas, it doesn't follow that the tension has disappeared. Your best remedy would be a physical therapy, such as massage or chiropractic.
