How soon after you do that do you get the pain?

straight away

And the pain is just in the back of your head with no problem in your neck?

OK That makes the possibility of a disk problem in your neck more likely Callum. If it were just a neck muscle spams problem alone, then there ought to be neck pain with the shaking. A disk problem in the neck can cause headaches without any symptoms at all in the neck itself
