Hi Zeb
You probably get tension headaches - If your doctors could not find any brain problems, or migraine, I would suggest you take 25mg Tryptanol in the evenings preventative ( you will need a prescription), go for physiotherapy and also ask the physio to teach you relaxation techniques and neck exercises.

It may be worth your while to go to the headache clinic if you live near enough:
