Specializes in Pain Management

See a neurologist: Occipital neuralgia (ON) involves the greater and lesser occipital nerves located in the back of the scalp and can produce neck pain as well as headache. The findings suggestive of trigeminal neuralgia -- particularly a younger patient -- should be questioned about other signs or symptoms of a primary neurological disease such as multiple sclerosis. See a neurologist.
