Hello I'm Dr Chip
Where exactly is this sensation located?
And is it constant?
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
Please let me know if you need any more information
