Hi!
Pain at the back of the head could be a case of occipital neuralgia. This usually happens due to spinal nerve compression because of upper cervical spinal nerves caused by overuse of computers, work involving straining of neck, herniated disc, canal stenosis, bone disease, spondylosis, poor posture. You should have a MRI focusing only on C1-3 and also look at C1-2 instability. These can be treated with occipital nerve blocks, physiotherapy, medications etc.
A stiff neck due to muscle contraction can also cause occipital headaches. These can be treated with physiotherapy, medications etc. Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral. Take care!
