If your pain arises from the neck or the base of your skull, and often involve the top of the head, the temple, the forehead, the eye, or some combination thereof, your occipital nerves may be irritated or inflamed and may cause a specific type of “neuralgic” pain or occipital neuralgia, producing migraine and other types of headache.
If one can block this area then it may be possible to stop the flow of pain at least temporarily. Pain relief can occur with startling rapidity, frequently within 15 minutes of the block(s). Response varies widely: a day or so up to weeks… even months.
