Hi Leona,
Thanks for wrirting your query.

It will be helpful if you please mention the name of medicines you have taken.

Single sided headaches are uusually due to Migraine or Cluster Headache, which I suppose your Neurologist must have ruled out after examining you.

You can take pain killer like Diclofenac 50 mg twice a day after meals along with a muscle relaxant like chloraxazone and an antacid like Omeprazole 20 mg.

Hot fomentation of your neck and back and application of pain relieving gel will be helpful.
Also avoid heavy weight lifting.
Use pillow which is neither very thick nor very thin.

If the problem persists get yourself examined by an Orthopedician.
I hope this is helpful to you.
