Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

How old are you?

What have you tried so far for your symptoms?

Muscle tension from the neck upwards can cause headaches.

Migraine headache is also possible.

The hard lump is incidental finding nothing serious.

Will not cause all these symptoms.

You can try prescription muscle relaxant flexeril and Naproxen for symptom control.

Physical therapy will help to ease muscle tensions.

Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
