Hi there!

Well, headache can have various causes like primary headaches (tension headaches, migraines, cluster headaches etc.), secondary headaches (meningitis, sinusitis, increased intracranial tension etc.) and cranial neuralgias. If there is associated neck stiffness (with or without fever) the first thing that would need to be ruled out would be meningitis. If it is just neck pain it may be due to inflammations (spondylitis) (assuming there was no injury involved). Depending on the cause an MRI may be necessary. You may like to get yourself evaluated by a neurologist/ orthopedician for the same. Meanwhile you may try taking some tylenol/ NSAIDS for relief.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
