If your blood pressure normally runs120/90 it is a little high. 120/80 used to be ideal. 110/70 is ideal now I am told. So it is only slightly our of range on the diastolic (the bottom number) and in range on the systolic (the top number). What's more if you are having pain especially severe pain. Your blood pressure will be higher. So the pain alone is likely pushing your blood pressure up. 10 or 20 points easily. You might want to try and do something about the pain. So your pain is pushing your blood pressure up not your blood pressure pushing your pain up. I am not a doctor but I am nearly sure of what I have told you.

Pain in the neck area, radiating to the back of the head up to the top of the head is a consequence of a high blood pressure. The opthalmic nerve wraps around the greater opthalmic artery. When your blood pressure is high enough, this will distend the artery, thus, distending the nerve causing pain. Have your blood pressure retaken as I believe it may be higher than 120/90. Symptoms such as this usually manifest with a blood pressure of 180 and up.Go see your doctor.

Your spine is made up of bones (vertebrae that support the body's weight), their joints (facets that guide the direction of the movement of the spine), and the discs (which separate the vertebrae and absorb the shock as you move), the muscles and the ligaments that hold it all together. One or more of these structures can be injured:
A good source is Natural cure for headache.
You can strain or sprain the ligaments or muscles from a sudden movement, improper movement, or through over use.
You can sprain the ligamentus part of your discs.
Sprains can allows the disc to bulge & press against a nerve.
Any of these injuries can result in a two-or-three day period of acute pain and swelling in the injured tissue, followed by slow healing and gradual reduction of pain.
