Pressure headache, have osteoarthritis in joints, neck and jaw. Had MRI, MRA and CAT scan. Treatment?

I am experiencing, what I would describe as a pressure headache , especially at the back of my head. I have had an MRI , MRA and a Cat scan of the brain and all the results are normal. I am 68 years old and have osteoarthritis in most of my joints, including my neck and left jaw. I feel that the headache may be a result of the arthritis. I take a tramadol before bed which gives me mild relief. Are there any specific meds. or treatments to help relieve this type of headache.

IN MY OPINION IT CAN BE RELATED TO ARTHRITIS AS THE HEAD IS ALSO MADE UP OF BONES AND JOINTS AND THERE ARE IMMOVABLE JOINTS OF BONES OF SKULL
