10 thoughts on “What is Occipital Neuralgia? How Is It Related To Fibromyalgia?

  1. I have Trigeminal Neuralgia and the pain gets really bad in the side of my face, my ear and jaw. Can this be related to
    fibromyalgia, which I have also?

  2. I too this week have been diagnosed with trigeminal neuralgia….I also have fibromyalgia and a long list of other health issues….the doctor prescribed me anti epilepsy medication! Of which I am not…..haven’t started the meds…..unsure truthfully…anyone shed any light as the pain is driving me crazy…..

  3. Yes, I believe occipital neuralgia could possibly be what I have been dealing with for over 10 years now. Doctors tried everything with medications, trigger point injections, nerve block, etc.. The only thing to bring me SOME relief from the extreme daily head, face, neck pain has been Botox injections every 3-4 months and an anti-seizure medication.

  4. I have been crazed with neck pain and migraine and my doctor put me on betablockers I’m no better and find this article.very interesting if I press on the base of my scull it triggers a raving headache and I have had fibromyalgia for 15yrs you would think the doctors would have tested me.i will be going back now.

  5. This fo t is too light for me to read comfortably. Would you consider in the future using a font that is darker and easier to read?

  6. Yes! I have occipital neuralgia as my primary diagnosis, fibromyalgia secondary. I have a neurostimulator implant for my occipital nerves, which alleviates some of the pain, but nothing really has helped the fibro pain.

  7. Have Fibro for30 years, have not been diagnosed with other but know I have it. This is going to sound bad, however to have some relief from pain and the opportunity for my body to relax for awhile, I’m gonna try it. Before I tell you I want you to know I am 60 yrs old. My Dr. Suggested I try Marijuna, I laughed at her, I don’t even drink. But ladies and some gents, it works, if you get the right combo, it works! I’ve been to every kind of dr. Tried all they suggested, worked out all the time, nothing, nothing worked, this works. It’s legal Oct.17. Talk to your Dr. ..it works

  8. Omg I have been having this all week gradually getting worse. Since getting over the flu. It’s only through to one eye but it does so hurt. Thank you so much for giving me clarity xx

  9. Mine started 17 years ago after a series of allergy shots. It laid me flat for 2 years. I was 58. When I was 30, I had my first TMJS occurrance. All of this head stuff. I got Sjogren’s after dental numbing. It’s like my lymphatic system wont drain from my head. Fibromyalgia is the worst disease i can imagine. Every system of the body can get disordered.
