Neurologist 's  Response
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Since you had a sudden onset of headache which is associated with neck pain, I suggest you to urgently visit a neurologist as you might require an urgent CT scan to rule out a vascular accident inside your brain.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
