Where is the headache located? Is it on the scalp or the forehead or behind the eye?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Spasms in shoulder and stiff and can't move easily. Headache peralsists.
Neurologist: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 8 months ago

It sounds as though you might have a tension headache or a pinched nerve in the cervical spine somewhere. Possibly in the C5 nerve root. Since the headache is generalized it's likely originating from the sinuses and the tension is probably both in the muscles on the surface as well as the nerve.

Since you're not having any weakness of the muscles and no problems with speaking or vision, I suspect that it is a pinched nerve and probably complicated by the sinus inflammation.
