Occipital neuralgia is pain resulting from trauma to the lesser and/or greater occipital nerves, located in the back of the head. This pain can be felt in the upper back, neck and behind the ears and is usually sharp and shock-like in nature. Numbness can also occur in these regions. It can be difficult to differentiate from other headaches like migraines and tension headaches.
