pulsating neck ache when squatting

I have been having headaches for the past couple of years. At first it was happening during my menstrual cycle, then I started on birth control which I believed helped out with my symptoms. I know I have migraines (light/noise sensitivity), but is just self-diagnosed. I have been on the birth control for the past 4 years (Now, on tri-sprintec which should be okay for migraines). Recently, since I started going back to school for my Master's, ending a relationship of 4 years that pushed me to getting my Master's, I have been under a lot of melancholy, stress, and physically, a lot of tension headaches. These past few months, I have noticed that I am having a lot of neck ache. Recently, there is this pulsating back of neck, base of skull pain, sometimes would accompany some dizziness. This pain is very local to the right part of the base of skull, but there is some referred should ache as well. Last time, I experienced the same shooting pain in the same location when sneezing. Maybe it is sinusitis? I have been having seasonal allergies the past year since I started to enjoy hiking a lot. I have never experienced this allergies when I was younger. Associated symptoms: are only right occipital headache, right orbital pain, right parietal head ache (these are mild). But the worse lingering pain is on the right posterior neck pain (7/10), and (10/10) when squatting. No vomiting, but occasional nausea (may not related (hyperacidity issue), no fevers, cervical motion of neck intact. No tingling or numbness in face, jaw, or arms. MEDS: Trisprintec once daily. Minimal exercise (have stopped for a about three months now, poor diet control- high carb diet, low on fiber). Female, 29, no medical history.  BP last time checked July 2017 (within AHA guidelines) Family history of BP, hypercholesterolemia. Blood works not checked yet. (Years ago)Recent lipid profile was high but HDL/LDL ratio is normal, put on diet modification.
