Thanks for writing to us.
The persistent pain in the head and neck with shoulder region is likely to be due to cervical spondylosis or shoulder joint bursitis or tendonitis. An MRI scan is required to diagnose such soft tissue abnormalities for proper treatment.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
