I was just wondering...is there anyone else here who has Occipital Neuralgia? Anyone with any advice on treatments for it, that hopefully help?
I was diagnosed with Occipital Neuralgia late last year, after almost 12 months of tests and scans, to eliminate everything else, to find answers!
The Occipital Neuralgia was caused, it seems, by damage to the nerves from surgery done through my neck, for an Arachnoid Cyst. That op was a few years ago now, but nerve pain developed last year.
I'm still yet to find the right treatment. I have tried many different types of meds, but they all had too many bad side-effects. So, I'm hoping to find a treatment that works, soon!
