Why does the Back of my head hurts?
When i do something to move my head, the back of my head hurts. For example when i nod my head or shake it, it also hurts. I havent done something to hurt it.

Hi
Thanks for writing to the forum!
There is a chance that you have compression of the spinal nerves in the cervical spine region. This can happen due to overuse of computers, work involving straining of neck, canal stenosis, bone disease, spondylosis, poor posture etc. A few neck exercises, or chiropractors can help relieve the pain. A MRI of the cervical spine may ne required. Please consult a neurologist.
Please discuss this with your doctor. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!

Wow thank you doctornee medical for that response! I am in "excellent" shape EXCEPT similiar symptoms celebxatxheart keeps having. I never new that my work posture can cause those symptoms...I'll really focus on that and see what happens but i'm pretty sure your right!

    It would be best to discuss this with your family and have them take you to the doctor and think back when this started during the day if you can as it would help the doctor be able to understand what happened. They can tell you what to do from there.
