5 inches off of the midline at the base of the skull on the same side is NOT tender then you likely do not have an occipital neuralgia
. If you have a relatively new pain, fever
, chills, very tender to pressure over the right temple, I would wonder about a temporal arteritis
altho unlikely. I would see your M.D. again ASAP or if unable, see urgent care
or E.R. now.
