Hello, Anon. Thank you for posting.

A headache with neck pain can be a tension headache. Stress is the most commonly reported trigger for tension headaches.

Signs and symptoms of a tension headache include:

Dull, aching head pain
A sensation of tightness or pressure across your forehead or on the sides and back of your head
Tenderness on your scalp, neck and shoulder muscles

We cannot know if this is the case for you. What did your doctor say? If the pain medication is not helping and the headache is not showing any signs of fading, a follow up with your doctor is needed.
