User :   I have head ache on the back of my head when i get stressed? Sometimes even when I am not stressed that much I get these head aches regularly, I.e., once every 3 months. Usually when i get the head ache the pain is so unbearable that i cant do anything but feel the pain.
I consulted a doctor, he said there's nothing wrong, but i still feel the pain.
Hope you answer me.
