Head Pain Occipital Neuralgia:

On another infographic, I found a person who had their second set of nerve block injections:

Had my second set of injection today. I have gone 6 weeks migraine free. This has been the best thing I have done since I have started fighting my migraine battle over 11 years ago. Greater occipital nerve block injections. I will not lie the injections do hurt but 5-10 minutes of pain is worth the end result. You will be sore and have pain for 4 days after but still worth it!:

    My friend has this and her symptoms are very similar to mine but mine is trigeminal neuralgia. Both are excruciating and hard to live with. Thank you for educating others.

        I can’t cope. It comes on and I have it for 3 days and can’t sleep it is so painful. Shooting pain. Awful. Nothing works to stop it. If I can catch it in time I will ice the area and that lessens it. Otherwise Iknow for three days I will just hurt. Same with my friend who has the occipital form
