In Apr 2013 went for decompression sx, surgeon said due to damage of nerves he removed them all. The pain before surgery was tolerable. The pain now is excruciating at times. On fentanyl 100, vicoden as needed, Gabapentin, lyrica, and a depression med. Have very few good days. Need life back.
Is occipital neuralgia the same as occipital migraines? That's what I have. But what has helped me tremendously are Botox injections and nerve block and trigger point injections. With both, the injections are on my forehead, the sides and back of my head, my neck and shoulders. Perhaps those can help you.
