What is the nature of my headaches?

I get headaches that start at the base of the back of my head, then seem to radiate over my brow. Warm compresses almost always help.
What is the likely cause of this?

I've had this situation since I was a kid, off and on in varying degrees of intensity/re-occurence. I'm trying to determine if it's muscle based, sinus, stress, chemical, etc. The thought that a warm compress almost always helps I find curious and indicative of "something", but "what"?
There once was a time it was so bad that I wouldn't go out of town unless I knew the hotel room I was staying in had a microwave so I could heat up a moist towel....
