The symptoms you describe can be attributed to any one of many different types of headaches. Your headache can be a primary or secondary headache. A cervicogenic headache is a secondary type headache. It is caused by some other underlying problem. Cervicogenic headaches usually come from a cervical spin problem, You should consult a doctor or neurologist to first determine what kind of headache you have, Cervicogenic headaches can be determined using nerve blocks to find the source of the problem.

As cervicogenic headache is mainly due to cervical spine related problem and its component bony or soft tissue component.
However the pain that you are experiencing can be due to stress related problem too..
Can you please tell that you experience symptoms like stiff neck, dizziness, nausea or vomiting, pain in arms etc along with headache?
-Can you please specify your age and any previous medical history?

Please revert back so that I can guide you better.
