I am new to this group. I’m 27. I have had chronic migraines and chronic neck pain for 15 years now. I’ve been on quite a few things with no luck of relief. Even all of the new once monthly injection preventatives. Most of my days in the month are included with migraines. My doctor told me there was no more she could do, and referred me to a neurologist/pain management specialist.
Within the past few weeks, I have done a little bit of research about the pain coming in at the base of my skull, off to the side. It came up with a few things, with Occipital Neuralgia being one of them. I looked into different stuff, but Occipital Neuralgia just seems to explain everything perfectly. My neck pain always starts in that same spot, then shoots up to my head. One of the first steps I want to try, is a nerve block shot. Has anybody had these before?
