    Head pain that is at the top of my head and goes to the back of my neck
    bigandy1223 posted:
    I am a retired military of 26 years and my adventure started when I got out of an elevator and my eyes started moving left to right for about 2 minuets and I was sent to the hospital where they treated me as a stroke patient but nothing was found after the CAT and MRI scans and the pain in my head at that point was in the back of my neck. After futher tests I was told that I may have had a vertigo event but the pain continued. I had extensive blood work, more tests and still nothing. It has been 2 years and no one can tell me how to stop this pain. Is there anyone else going through this and have suggestion.

    Mostly headache on the top of the head is caused by stress. The best solution to get rid of this is a healthy diet, constant exercise and sufficient rest. Regular meditation or yoga may help you!
