Thanks for your query, albeit small and specific; without any additional history.
You have a complaints of pain in the back side of the head on the right side.

The commonest causes are:
-Neck muscle myalgia, causing referred pain.
-Local swelling of the muscles.
-Locally cyst or so which got infected.
-Occasionally, the vision defects or sinusitis can also cause such referred pain.

I would advise in such a situation the following:
