Sorry you're having headaches. How long have you been having your headaches for and how frequently do you get them?
Sometimes people who have a history of migraines develop Transformed Headaches (or Chronic Daily Headache / CDH). I know it's not fun.
Without more details about
the knot in your neck it's really hard to know weather this is actually the root of your pain, or if you just have a knot and also have headaches. I doubt it is this (much more likely to be headache), but has your neurologist ruled out occipital neuralgia? Again it's difficult to tell without having more detail.
There are many treatments choices available to you if you do have CDH.
Did any of the prescript
ions (steroids, fioricet, skelaxin) or OTC med (tylenol, advil, excedrin) help even just a little?
I would recommend keeping a detailed headache journal. You can find many examples just by googling the term. Note when you go to sleep, wake up, what you eat, when you eat and of course when you have headaches. If the headaches feel different somehow, note how they are different. You can even include the weather for the day, how much exercise you got and what type of exercise you did.
