Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Tension in the back of the neck muscles accompanied by headaches can be caused by several possibilities, including:
poor working position (for example, often lifting heavy objects on the neck or head, sitting a lot in front of a computer in an un ergonomic position)
poor sleeping position (for example, often tilted to one side)
history of head or neck injury
other causes are less common such as disruption of the cervical spine, inflammation of the lining of the brain (meningitis)
Some things you can try to do first:
Improve your work position
Avoid lifting heavy objects on the neck or head
Sleep on your back on a fairly hard mat
Compressing tense areas with warm compresses and doing gentle massage on tense muscle areas
Stretch your neck muscles every few hours
If stiffness and pain are very annoying, you can take pain relievers like paracetamol. If indeed the symptoms do not subside with the things above, you can consult your condition directly to a neurologist so that further evaluation can be done.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
