Background: I am a 37 year old male without a history of headaches. I'm in good shape, take care of my body and eat well. About 4 months ago, I pulled a back muscle (lower) and had spasms because of this. This injury took a month to heal from. About three weeks ago, I had what I thought was an earache. It last a day, but went away. Two days later, I started getting headaches. The head pain was in the back. It felt tight, with a lot of pressure. And, my ears felt off like I had a cold. Well, the headache got worse, so I went to the DR. She said I had tension/stress headaches, which I believed because my job as a psychotherapist is very stressful. About a month prior to my headaches, I was working 50-60 hour weeks, enough to give anyone stress. I started using OTC, and ice daily. The intensity is less, but my headache is lingering, still in the back but slightly toward the top. Overall, I've had this headache for three weeks. Any thoughts? I appreciate it, thank you!
