Hi Dr. Mo here, it sounds like it could be a migraine or a tension headache.

Are you having any numbness or weakness of the facial muscles?

Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 10 months ago.

The fact that it comes and goes is a good sign.

Bad things like tumors or bleeding in the brain usually are constant and get worse and worse.

Have you done anything that could have aggravated the muscles in the neck?

Have you been grinding your teeth or clenching your teeth?
