Neck/headache or migraine.
I have symptoms of regular dull neck pain, sensitivity, tension, and pressure, which extend sometimes to the back of my my skull, and often prevent me from concentrating. I also occasionally experience more typical sharp headaches and subtle dizziness, and feel as though I am about to faint (though this has not happened). Yet I also occasionally experience scintillating scotoma (spreading zig-zag lines in vision). Could such migraine-like symptoms originate from a neck or head injury? The neck symptoms began 3 weeks after a head injury in which i did not lose consciousness, maybe a mild concussion at most. The visual symptoms did not occur until a couple of months later, and are very irregular, tending to come in bunches.

Hi,
How are you? Headache and dizziness that came after a head injury  should be investigated further. Imaging studies such as MRI of the brain and cervical spine will help rule out cervical spine injuries, nerve compressions and concussion. Check with your neurologist for proper evaluation. Take care and regards.
