I have had a bad bruise like pain on the back of my skull on

Customer Question

I have had a bad bruise like pain on the back of my skull on the left side for almost 3 days now. I didn't hit my head and there is no lumps or swelling that I can tell. I can barely lay my head back, which makes it very hard to sleep. The pain doesn't come and go it just stays the same intensity unless I push on it. When I push on it for a few seconds it feels a little better for a few minutes, but it doesn't completely go away. I'm starting to get worried. What could be wrong?

its at the very base of my skull on the left though. and it has only been going on for 3 days. its never happened before and it came on pretty suddenly. does this mean it won't likely go away on its own? is it something that can be dangerous? i read somewhere that it could possibly be an absess. is that possible?
