Occipital Neuralgia

Occipital neuralgia is a condition characterized by painful nerves at the back of the head and neck. In most cases, the exact cause is not identified. Causes can include pinching of the occipital nerves as they emerge from the spinal cord due to arthritis, tense muscles or injury to the back of the head/neck. The most common symptom is pain at the scalp at the back of the head.
