Cervicogenic Headache

What is a Cervicogenic Headache?

A Cervicogenic Headache starts in the cervical spine—your neck. Sometimes these headaches mimic migraine headache symptoms. Initially, pain may begin intermittently, spread to one side (unilateral) of the patient's head, and become almost continuous. Furthermore, pain can be exacerbated by neck movement or a particular neck position (eg, eyes focused on a computer monitor).

Cervicogenic Headache Symptoms

A Cervicogenic Headache presents as a steady, non-throbbing pain at the back and base of the skull, sometimes extending downward into the neck and between the shoulder blades. Pain may be felt behind the brow and forehead, even though the problem originates from the cervical spine.

Pain usually begins after a sudden neck movement, such as a sneeze. Along with head and/or neck pain, symptoms may include:

  • Stiff neck

  • Nausea and/or vomiting

  • Dizziness

  • Blurred vision

  • Sensitivity to light or sound

  • Pain in one or both arms

  • Mobility difficulties
