My head aches, but not all over, sort of behind my eyes and the top of my head, it's a really stinging headache. If I cough it feckin hurts my head, and I hold thetop of my head in the vain attempt to stop it hurting so much!

My back, not my spine but sort of the sides of my back, really ache, and the same ache is at the back of my neck / bottom of my skull.

No sneezing or snot.

Is the diagnosis man flu?

Probably...but just call up or go to a walk-in clinic to make sure...maybe they could do an xray of your back and see whether there's something else? I think it's safe to say if pain is too much consider taking ibuprofen (after having eaten something). 400mg should do smile and keep an eye out if you feel feverish. Take care!
