Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
My best wishes for a speedy recovery .
I have gone through your medical history in detail .
You have left retromastoid pain radiating down to neck & over the head .
FIRSTLY I would suggest you to take some ANALGESIC +MUSCLE RELAXANT for about 4-5 days .
SECONDLY if pain still persists , & as the pain is acute/subacute , you need further investigations like MRI CERVICAL SPINE & NCCT BRAIN to rule out any lesion.

If all these investigations are normal , you may require some physiotherapy to relieve local muscle spasm etc.

Hope this answers your querry .
Kindly feel free to ask any further querry .
