Heaviness in head, headache. Taken Benzodiapines. What sensation is this?

I suffer from chronic head heaviness and headache from last many years and its 24*7.Actually i dont know what is it that i am suffering from. There is a uniform sensation throughout my body and it feels good when i stretch my body parts or some one presses my back or my legs or hands but unfortunately i cannot stretch my head which is protected by skull .Benzodiaphines kind of completely eradicate my symptoms my head heaviness and discomfort vanishes.But what sensation is this? Is it muscle soreness ,muscle tightness or fatigue? This sensation gets relieved if someone presses my back or any body part.Painkillers dont seem to affect,nor do antidepressents but benzodiaphines surely help.I feel like stretching always or sleeping because it kind of makes me tired and the head heaviness is persistent which sometimes turns into a throbbing headache.I do not suffer from any tension or anxiety to my knowledge nor do i have heart palpitations or anything.What is this?any suggestions .thanx

Thank you for posting your query.
First of all, I would like to reassure you that your symptoms are not suggestive of any serious neurological illness.
These are suggestive of muscle stiffness and tightness. It is possible that you have fibromyalgia.
A good clinical examination would be helpful. There are good treatments available for this condition.
Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
