Occipital Headache

Type: 
Consumer

The occipital nerve transversing the back of the head can cause unilateral head pain with radiation to the temporal area of the head. These symptoms can be precipitated by injury, overlaying muscle tension or anatomic variations.

The neuralgia can be treated with medication, local blocks and in some cases surgical intervention.
