Hi! Is anyone here diagnosed with occipital neuralgia or glossopharyngeal neuralgia?
Just a little background info, I’ve never had any headaches/migraines for as long as l can remember. Maybe a stiff neck every once in a while from sleeping but nothing too severe. Recently, I’ve been experiencing extremely sharp sudden pains on the back of my head and the top of my scalp feels tender (its the same feeling I have whenever I wear a tight ponytail and my scalp feels sore afterwards). It happens I tilt or position my head a certain way but it only lasts for a couple of seconds. However, this is only on the left side of my ear, neck, and head while my right side is completely unaffected. The symptoms I have match with occipital neuralgia, but my throat is also a bit sore on the left side as well (could be glossopharyngeal neuralgia?). I’m a bit worried. Does anyone else have issues swallowing/have a partial sore throat as a symptom with ON?
