Our expert says:
Disc degeneration would rather give you symptoms in your hands and arms than headaches - you may have developed neck and upper back muscle spasm due to stress or because your body wants to protect this area in your neck. This can give you a pressing headache like a band over the head or a gnawing headache behind the eye. Migraine usually is only on one side, throbbing and causes nausea and light flashes.
It may be worth your while to see a physiotherapist for evaluation and treatment for muscle spasm.
