Can Occipital Neuralgia Cause Ear Pain
Does occipital neuralgia cause tingling and numb feeling around one side of forehead and temple and front of head?
No: This involves the distribution of the Greater Occipital Nerve of Arnold, and the area is behind and above one ear.
All, of it: The occipital nerves supply sensation to, the skull. Is the greater occipital Nerves are irritated, pain can be experienced over the top and into the eye. Lesser occipitals cause pain in the shape, of a banana over the top, of the ears and sides of, the skull. There are good treatments for this. See your local, pain Doctor.
