In this position, the lump is nearly the size of a ping pong ball cut in half
; but it is more oblong than round. I can
always feel it but not as a pain but feels more like a stiff neck. If I look in any direction, down or up, for more than 5 - 10 minutes as when I'm on my computer at work, sleeping, etc., I begin to feel a dull pain. Once the pain begins, it progressively gets worse over a 2 - 3 hour period until an unbearable stabbing pain encompasses my entire head.
