Pain in the back of the head, so it feels tight to the neck, shoulders, and waist may be caused by a pinched spinal nerve. This condition occurs usually due to excessive pressure on the nerves by surrounding tissue, it can be bone, cartilage, muscle, or tendon. The uncomfortable sensation that arises due to these nerve pins can be in the form of pain, tension, like being drawn, tingling, numbness, to weakness. These nerve tongs can show symptoms that vary depending on the cause and location of the pins.
