Txmt is a holistic recipe of self-care, wellness, Vits, Magnesium supp, sleep,, massage, yoga, stretching, chiropractors. Tub soaking. As a doctor, I’ve rediscovered modified versions of acupuncture/trigger points inj, which roots out the pain.

In brief: Common

The pain of occipital neuralgia frequently radiates to the frontal region.
Occipital neuralgia can be caused by trauma, injury, inflammation, or compression of the greater occipital nerve somewhere along its course from the C2 dorsal root to the periphery.
