pain in the neck

For years now i've had a pain at the base of my neck on the right side, it hurts if I apply slight pressure, I suffer from headaches, which if left almost always turns into a migraine but they always start at this point in my neck, it feels like a small lump, if I apply pressure to it & deep massage it it hurts like hell but does slightly ease the pain, could this be a tension knot? If anyone could help it would be much appreciated!

Yes,this does sound like a tension headache.I have them myself,and it will start form the back of my neck and spread to my head.Very uncomfortable!Mine will usually subside with a painkiller but like you,i do have a knotted area on my right side aswell.I suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome and anxiety so i get a lot of these!The pain radiates to the top of my shoulders at times.Try seeing the doctor as he/she may give you some medication/advice on how to tackle this!
