Are these symptoms more of a migraine problem or anxiety/stress?

Every day for the past 4 months I have been getting head pains/aches.
The symptoms keep changing as well.

Month 1 weeks 1-2:
The back of my head has a small headache like it has been in ice and it hurts (not my scalp or my skull, but like in the center of my brain). It was mostly on my right hemisphere, but it would sometimes jump to the left.
I would get passing out feelings, and they became more frequent if I was scared or/and worried. My sight did not go black, but it felt just like passing out.

Month 1 week 4 as well as Month 2 weeks 1-2:
The pain has shifted...
Now my neck gets stiff and hurts, especially if I keep it turned for 10+ seconds.
These pains also change. they feel like a simple "I fell on my knee" kind of pain and it was right where my skull attacked to my neck. (and by the way, the passing out feelings have stopped).

Month 2 weeks 3-4:
When the headaches start, they only start in one hemisphere, but my whole brain hurts from it, but it is still not mild, yet it bothers a lot uugh.
I would get a feeling that someone just stabbed my temple (only happened on the left 4 times) and it feels like an icicle is stuck there! its a brain freeze kind of pain and its very sever. I even squeal a bit and bend my knees down and have my head on my temple and they come randomly at any time.

Month 3 (This month of August):
The stabbing pains were rare, in fact I dont think I got even 5 of them and for the past 2 weeks I have not got them at all.
My headaches are now either on the crown or in the front of my head. they usually like to hang around the right side, like now. it just feels like the tip of a screwdriver trying to push its way in. (all these headaches are barely hurting or disabling even, but they do get mild where I just have to take advil and sometimes sleep it off).

wow I reviewed before submitting yet I missed a few words I could have edited. I am sorry if I convinced someone my head is attacking my neck. I am at peace, but not peace of mind.
