Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.

I understand your concern.

Probably your doctor should rule out Cervico-genic Headache.

Migraine Headache

Also your doctor can monitor your blood pressure and rule out hypertension.

With normal brain scan you should not worry about brain tumour at all.

Anxiety should be the diagnosis of exclusion if all relevant test and vitals are normal.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

Your doctor can send you for X-Ray of Cervical Spine AP view And Lateral View.

Neck pain and headache can be due to cervical Spondylosis as well.

Also if clinically suspected treatment for anxiety can be started which may include short term treatment with medication like alprazolam.
