Headache at the back of skull is caused by several pathological conditions. The image study and consultations with neurosurgeon is important to find the cause of headache. It is possible the headache could be caused by poor eye sights, tension headache or occipital neuralgia. Evaluation comprising of proper diagnosis, detailed history, eye examination, and image studies like of MRI of neck is essential. Blood pressure of 140/70 may cause headache on and often mostly in the morning or later in the day, depending on the age of the patient.
You should consult neurologist to rule out some the conditions before concluding the headache is caused by blood pressure.
