If you do not have dizziness, nausea, and vomiting. Slurred speech and/or weakness on one side of the face or the body then there is no need to worry.

Occipital headaches (back of the head pain) and neck pain often go side by side and this is usually due to spasm of the paraspinous muscles of the neck. You should take Tylenol for pain relief and get some bed rest. Keep an eye on your symptoms, in case they get worse, contact your doctor.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
