Question: I was incline bench pressing weights, after I decided to do one more rep, I felt a sharp pain in the lower part of my head in back, Now I have a mild constant head ache most of the time. Do you think I hurt myself or pulled a muscle or some thing, Or maybe something more serious. Aside from the head ache I don't have any other issues. no memory loss no bleeding in the eyes ears or fatigue or imbalances. No double speech no forgetfulness, just an aggravating throbbing head ache

Brief Answer:
Possibility of muscle spasm

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
There is possibility of muscle spasm or aggravation of migraine headache.
Another possibility may be vertebral artery dissection if neck pain is more severe.
You should take pain killers with muscle relaxant for few days.
Get examined by a neurologist.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
