OK

This sounds like what's called occipital neuritis--an inflammation of the greater occipital nerve that exits the skull in that location

Nothing too serious and for now I suggest applying an ice pack to the area and continue with the ibuprofen, but you should see your doctor about this since a cortisone injection can relieve the pain
