Hi Anon

Thanks for your post! 

For the benefit of our readers, Occipital Neuralgia is a neuropathic pain disorder originating from the occipital nerve, located in the area of the second and third cervical (neck) bones.

It is a chronic headache characterized by a sharp, throbbing pain or feeling of pressure in the back of the neck and base of the skull. Pain can transfer to other areas of the head, such as the forehead or sides of the face. The affected areas may be sore to the touch and the eyes may feel strained or sensitive to light.

Have you been properly diagnosed with Occipital Neuralgia? If not, I suggest you see a doctor before looking into treatments. 

 Treatments for Occipital Neuralgia vary according to the severity of the person’s condition. For mild pain, massage sometimes helps, as does rest and trying to avoid stress. Anti-inflammatory medications can also be used.

Natural anti-inflammatories include fresh fruits and vegetables (peppers, dark leafy green, tomatoes beets, cherries, raspberries - look for foods with rich red and orange colors), and tumeric, ginger and cloves. Salmon and sardines are also good for fighting inflammation. 

Again, please ensure you have this condition before treating it, although the advice above will not harm you in any way if you don't.
