Hi there Travis and thanks so much for posting this question.
Please feel free to post in Internal medicine or Neurology Forum but I will give you my opinion.
According to your symptoms you may have some swelling or infections that needs to be localized. You should go to a doctor and check with a Neurologist and see if there is any swelling, infection or blood clots then you should check with a dentist. Cavities or gum disease can really affect swelling of the gums and can cause that whenever you have a bump or move the head in a certain way you may feel that there is an infection. I kknow you haven’t mentioned it but just go to your local dentist and do a traditional check up. I have had problems with my teeth and gums and I can remember pretty well those times where I had some gum swelling and then would feel like my head was about to explode!
In any case your description could be some swelling I would recommend you do more moderate exercises and see if you feel the same or the symptoms disappear.
On a side note some of the symptoms they can refer to “swollen lymph nodes” although you should really check with your neurologist. If he hasn’t seen it , it is really unlikely that you have that although I am going to share some information from the Mayo clinic
Swollen lymph nodes usually occur as a result of exposure to a bacteria or virus. Less commonly, swollen lymph nodes are caused by cancer.
Your lymph nodes, also called lymph glands, play a vital role in your body's ability to fight off viruses, bacteria and other causes of illnesses. Common areas where you might notice swollen lymph nodes include your neck, under your chin, in your armpits and in your groin.

thank you very much for your response to my question. My neorologist had ordered an ultrasound of my neck and it did show that my lymph nodes are swollen. I had a full line blood work done and the only thing that came back was that i had Epstein bar. My neurologist said that since the mri of my brain did not show anything to be concerned about that my problem was cronic fatigue syndrome causing the pain that im feeling. Its honestly hard for me to beleive it because it feels like i have more of a physical problem like something is in my head causing the pain or like a nerve is pinched somewhere. Do you agree that this can be causing the pain im feeling? And a dentist might not be a bad idea at all. Thank you again
