I have been getting headaches in the back. I was very scared

Hi I have chronic neck pain and have been told I have arthritis in my neck. But for the last few weeks Ive been getting headaches in the back of my head. The other night I woke up with the worst headache of my life in the back of my head raidiating forward and I felt lots of pressure. I was very scared!! My doctor felt it and said it was tight back there and confident it would go away. Do I have reason for cocern ?

What you are experiencing is due to a PROBLEM, and problems don't just "go away". The good thing is that your problem can be helped by visiting a Doctor of Chiropractic. I am suspecting that what you are suffering from is a misalignment of one of the top bones in the spine just under the skull. The name of the bone I am suspecting is the C1 vertebra.
