I have been experiencing headache usually at the top of the head, sometimes at the back portion of the head for sometime. Although the pain is bearable it is bothering me to the extent that I can not do my work efficiently. The pain would sometime be for a day, sometimes for a couple of days. What could this be?

There are literally hundreds of conditions, headache disorders and other conditions, that could fit your description.
NOBODY can diagnose via the internet. The only person who can do that is a doctor who can review your and your family's medical history, discuss your symptoms with you, and conduct a complete examination.
Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert
