Hello. Welcome to JA. From your description given your age and gender, the most likely diagnosis is cervicogenic headache. This is related to bone loss/remodeling of the cervical spine giving rise to irritated nerve routes and cervical muscle spasm. That rises to the occipitalis muscle and then frontalis giving you a tension type headache. I will attach a webpage. Take a look and respond. Dr Frank
