I have pains in the back of my head occasionally,

Patient : I have pains in the back of my head occasionally, and when I pop my neck, the pain stops. Is this normal?
Symptoms:  Pain in back of head
Doctor :   Hello, Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com I understand your concern. There are two possibilities here, ei ther it could be due to a muscular spasm or it could also be due to a pinched nerve. If it persists beyond 2 weeks, just get it examined by your family physician. You can take Advil SOS if needed. Hope this was helpful, Regards.
