Hello: I have been having headaches almost everyday since March 08. They are always in the back of ny head in the lower left side of my skull. I had a CT Scan done in May 08 which showed a benign cyst above the left side right above the jaw. My primary Dr.sent me to see a nuerologist. I was on vicoden so was not able to be seen by the nuerologist until July. She said I have occipital nuralgia and I have been having nerve blocks every 2 months since July 08. the only relief that I have gotten from the headaches was with the 2nd nerve block, it did not take it away completely but it was considerly less after the 2nd one. I go back the end of this month to get another nerve block. What is happening in the last 3 weeks is every time I get a headache I feel this horrible pressure in the lower part of my head that almost feels like something is compacting my head and I get a terrible pain in my upper jaw on both sides..I am about sick of these headaches. I am questioning if this is this truly occiptal nueralgia?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
