Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
The headache that you have described can be due to some major causes such as Aneurysm. Hence a MRI scan of the brain is essential. Further there could be some trivial causes as well like sprained neck muscle but still it needs to be investigated.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
