Thank you for visiting

I recommend that you consult a physio therapist, in order to assess your muscles at the back of your neck and scull, as it is possible that they are in spasm, which in turn can cause terrible headaches. The physio therapist will be able to treat you and to alleviate the spasm.

If the pain persists after these physio sessions, you should consult a neurologist.

Kind regards
