Occipital Neuralgia and Brain Injury
I had a mild head injury almost 14 years ago but didn’t have it medically checked out at the time. However, I have a large dent in the back of my head where the impact occurred, and if I touch the area it gives me a blinding headache. Obviously, the brain injury didn’t end up being life threatening, but why is that area of my head still be hurting so many years after the fact?
Your symptoms are consistent with an injury to a nerve in the back of your scalp. Occipital neuralgia is caused by an injury to the occipital nerve. The occipital nerve comes out of the cervical spine and gives sensation to the back of the scalp. With an injury to the skull that left a dent, injury to this nerve is easy to imagine.
You should consider seeing a physician familiar with traumatic brain injury. Depending on the severity of your symptoms, medication and/or nerve blocking injections can be effective in treating this problem.

I have occipital neuralgia as the result of a fall and concussion and was getting relief from injections of corticosteroids. The relief was lasting 3-4 weeks. However, I just received a Botox injection. It has completely eliminated the pain and headaches and I supposed to last at least 3 months!!

Its good at first but remember as tolerances increase downside is effective aspect decreases I’ve had it over 5 years inbetween sumitriptan sub cut injection helps and migramax powders

I was in a car accident 3 years ago and still under the treatment of a neurologist, a rehab Dr. and now a plastic surgeon and pain management Neuro and PA, oh and lets not forget my GP who has not kept up with any of my treatments, but is suppose to keep up on my meds and does not. Lets talk about a broken system of Medicine in America and providers who are at the mercy of protical and hospital policy. I went in after the accident was driven to ER by a family member right after the accident, diagnosed with concussion and whiplash, sent home 8 hours later to nurse my wounds. followed up with GP. 3 days later due to terrible head and neck pain. the concussion later turned into post concussive syndrome and /or a MTBI. My dr. went on maternity leave. good for her leaving me with an assortment of others to fill in 3 months in I asked for a referral to a neurologist. After 2 office visits /6 months later they did an MRI of the neck found two avulsion fractures at C7 and T1. Yes after 6 months the neurologist refereed me to a pain management DR who requested the MRI, not impressed with neuro . hence the mri showed the avulsion fx. Today . 3 years later, I am being treated for Permanent post concussive syndrome and Greater Occipital nerve damage. Still on Tramadol for pain Tizanadine as a muscle relaxer. Zonisimide, cymbalta, Odansitrone Lidocaine nerve blocks every 2 weeks, and I have done alot on my own, such as cranial sac rial, energy work, massage, acupuncture, acupressure, sensory deprivation chamber. to get the head pain blurred vision, light sensitivity and my speaking issues under control as I developed a studded from the brain injury which damage or affected the cognitive and executive functioning of my brain .. The Medical community is a joke. JUST a JOKE. frustrated beyond belief. The treatment has been lacking at best. Getting prescription refills when the Neuros want the GP to write the prescriptions, as they want one dr. doing all the meds. that too is a huge cluster of errors. seriously Medicine in america needs to get a grip and start treating patients and not the insurance company or hospital, clinic politics how about you do whats best for the patient. That is my frustration. Thanks for letting me share my story.

The above story the same happened to me and it just went in 5 years completely understand and also just as frustrated and mine happened at work. It’s terrible how you have to fight for yourself to get better when the medical field , the city and workers comp want to fight you. I have all the same symptoms and trials . I have done much on my own tried all the stuff the above person has tried and on same medications and more because I can not sleep , get occipital nerve blocks to relieve pain and pressure .

Hi, I am very curious about your case as I suspect something similar with me. I fell really bad on the back of my head when I was 14 but never went to see the doctor. How did your speech ability change? Could you describe it a little bit for me please?
Jackie replied on Sun, 06/28/2020 – 10:32am Permalink
I also have had similar issues with illness . And worse, as I age, that seems to be the go to reason that all physicians use now. You go to the doctor not feeling well or aches and pains they ask my age. I recently strained my thumb after bending in back trying to hold onto a slipping bag of concrete. I went to an urgent care. They asked my age and said I had arthritis . I was told to use aspercream or something similar for pain. I have been wearing a brace, I bought myself, for 3 weeks now with some improvements. You just gotta take care of yourself.

Ok in regards to the occipital Nueralgia, I was diagnosed with this disgusting injury as well. I acquired this after 2 spinal surgeries resulting in a double CSpine fusion from C3,4 and C5,6. I have a horrible pinch that goes from the base of my skull up around to my eye in one string. (Best way to describe it. It’s like a long string of pinch around my skull). The reason for the fusion is because my discs burst out from each side ripped through the nerves surrounding the spinal cord and pinched off the spinal cord. My question is, does having ON automatically mean you have a brain injury? I have crazy mood swings I forget everything, I am tired some days where I sleep for days. I have gone in for very regular (every 3-4 mths) Steroid injections into the occipital nerve to calm down the inflammation and to do a nerve block. My worker w Spinal cord injury thinks I may be suffering from a traumatic brain injury due to this and feels I should have this investigated.

I have a dent too but the dent is flat on top and left a slightly noticeable protruding on the back of head. I have no headache or any other problem except ringing in ears/head since 10 days. the ringing gets worse when i rest my head on pillow. Is it because of the dent straining the nerve or nerve being strained? The ringing is severe even when lying on side of my side. Is skull dent permanent? How much time would it take for occipital neuralgia to cure on its own?

Why is it necessary to get a referral from an M.D. who is clueless and feels insulted that you don’t fall for their prescription-pill-protocol when you need to see a neurologist after a T.B.I. ?
Our medical associations are broken when they go strictly by insurance-company-catering protocols designed to negate evidence of occipital nerve injuries by inadequate CT scans.
Every neuroradiologists knows you need an MRI that is 300% more likely to find damaged nerve axons and fibers than will a CT scan, therefore insurance companies have lobbied against more costly MRI scans to diagnose occipital nerve damage and subdural microhemmoraging.
Nevertheless, we must rely on the referrals of an idiot before we can go into the village.
Georgia replied on Fri, 05/17/2019 – 7:52pm Permalink
Had the same problem. Went to the ER but the neurologist requests a referral from a private care. Ridiculousness.
I am now here waiting with severe pains in my neck and head as well as facial swelling that these so-called Dr can’t diagnose with a ct scan.

Hi my name is Max. Almost two years ago I hit the back of my head real hard skiing. I had a concussion and I still have many problems. My visions feels really off and kind of blurry. The back of my head feels really tender and my whole head feels vulnerable. I have constant neck pains and it is always stiff and uncomfortable. I was also just diagnosed with hypothyroidism as a result from the concussion. Any chance I have occipital neuralgia or any upper cervical injuries

I had a concussion when I was 21 that lasted 4 weeks or more. I fell off a 4′ podium and hit my head on concrete leaving a flattened spot in the back of my head. I don’t have daily headaches but I’m wondering if this might cause me to have glitches in my vis in and socially be unable to register when people are done talking, I interrupt a lot and I don’t mean to. I also misread information and often hit things in my peripheral vision with my car because I miss read how far they are away. I have had several fender benders where I misread the distance between myself and the car in front of me. Could this fall have damaged my occipital neve in this way?? No pain, just glitches

In October 2013 I split the back of my head open, needing twelve staples. Since then I have had loss of vision, strokes, and now I’m smelling oranges (of which I don’t like). I’m seeing double now and the headaches are debilitating. The two neurologists I saw are dumbfounded so I’m seeking a third opinion. I have blood clots on my brain and a mass in there too. Just want relief ðŸ˜¢ I’m only 45.

I had a head injury in oct 2012. Skull fractures no open injuries but the reason I bring this up other than paralyzing head pain my only long term side effects due to nerve damage is loss of taste and smell. The smell I didn’t notice immediately and smelt specific scents for weeks at a time. To this day I have episodes where my brain “hallucinates” smells aka smelling things that aren’t around me or even made up scents that I can’t place. I’m only 25. Best wishes through your journey. We’re blessed to be here

I suffered a traumatic brain injury as the result to a blow to the left side of my head. That was 2014. I still have head pain there that gets worse when I have worked my brain (lots of mind work, physical movement, and such). I also have a spot that if I touch it hurts like crazy. I knew my brain itself can’t hurt, but that is how I always described it. Thank you for asking the question and thank you, Doctor, for your answer. We all now understand it is the nerves in the head that are injured and causing our nasty “TBI headaches”! Now I know exactly what to talk to my neurologist about at our next visit.

Hi Natalie. saw your post. So sorry about your accident. I had something similar when a 25 lb object fell and hit me in the head. You are not crazy! It sounds like maybe something affected your visual field or convergence ability. I have a permanent double vision and a blind spot in my peripheral vision which has been helped tremendously by my vision therapist. It might help you too if you find one in your area that treats concussive patients. There may be something out of alignment in your vision that can be helped. Good luck..

7 Best CBD Oils for Nerve Pain
This article contains affiliate links to products. We may receive a commission for purchases made through these links.
Did you know that CBD oil is a natural and safe method of treating nerve pain? This article will provide you with information on what CBD oil is and how it can be used to treat various forms of nerve pain. By the time you finish reading this article, you may discover that CBD oil could be an effective treatment for your nerve pain.
What is CBD Oil?
CBD oil, also known as cannabidiol or cannabinol, is a safe and natural herbal supplement that comes from the cannabis plant. Unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which causes the typical “high,” CBD oil does not produce any psychoactive effect.
In the past few years, there has been a growing interest in this herbal supplement. This is due to the many health benefits of CBD oil, such as its ability to treat various forms of pain and anxiety. In addition, there are other potential medical uses for CBD oil that remain to be studied.
The reason why CBD oil has become so popular over the years is largely due to the fact that it does not produce any dangerous side effects. The reason behind this is that, unlike other drugs and supplements, CBD oil comes from natural cannabis plants instead of chemical laboratories. As a result, there has been no evidence to suggest that CBD oil can lead to any harmful or uncomfortable side effects.
What is nerve pain?
Nerve pain, also known as neuropathic pain, is an umbrella term for various types of chronic pains. These can include burning, stabbing, and tingling types of pain that are felt due to nerve damage. Neuropathic pain can be caused by conditions such as shingles or diabetic neuropathy.
It should be noted that not all nerve pains are the same, and each type of pain is unique in its own way. For instance, some types of neuropathic pain may be caused by injuries to the nerve. One such example would include when a patient’s sciatic nerve is injured due to a herniated disc.
Other types of nerve pain, such as that from diabetic neuropathy, are caused by increased sugar levels that start to damage the nerves. As a result, many people who suffer from diabetes develop this condition because of long-term nerve damage.
In some cases, neuropathic pain may be due to the development of small masses on or around the spine called tumors. In addition, it can also be caused by various drugs, such as anti-convulsants.
What are the symptoms of nerve pain?
As mentioned above, there are several different types of neuropathic pain. Therefore, each type will have its own set of symptoms that can vary from patient to patient.
For instance, most people who suffer from sciatic nerve pain will complain about a sharp and intense pain that starts from the lower back and goes down to their feet. In severe cases, this form of nerve pain can even extend to the legs.
Other symptoms include numbness or tingling in any area where the sciatic nerve is located as well as an overall sense of weakness in both legs.
In some cases, patients with diabetic neuropathy will report a tingling sensation in their legs and feet. In most cases, this condition will also include unexplained weight loss, fatigue, and slow-healing sores on the legs or feet.
How can CBD Oil Help Treat Nerve Pain?
CBD oil has shown to have several benefits that can help treat patients who are suffering from nerve pain. For instance, CBD oil has been proven to be an effective anti-inflammatory agent, which is why it is often recommended for people who suffer from arthritis.
Additionally, many studies have found that the use of CBD oil may also offer neuroprotective effects. The reason for this is that CBD oil has been shown to promote the growth of new nerve cells, therefore promoting healthy and functional nerves in patients who suffer from neuropathic pain.
In addition, CBD oil has also been proven to help control neurotransmitter release, which can help regulate pain levels when they become too high.
Another benefit associated with CBD oil is that it can reduce chronic pain and inflammation. This means that CBD oil may be an effective treatment option for those who suffer from conditions such as arthritis and diabetes.
CBD oil has also been proven to help improve sleep quality, which is why many patients with nerve pain often experience insomnia. In some cases, such as when a patient is struggling with insomnia, CBD oil can help improve their quality of sleep.
Although there are various types of medications that can be prescribed to patients who suffer from nerve pain, many people prefer natural remedies like CBD oil.
CBD Oil Uses for Nerve Pain
It seems that CBD oil is a very promising and effective treatment of nerve pain. There are various different types of nerve pain, including:
Phantom limb pain.
This occurs when an individual has lost a limb and continues to feel the presence of that limb even though it’s gone.
This is a condition that causes extreme facial pain.
This is the most common type of nerve pain that occurs after an outbreak of shingles. It typically occurs in older people who are more vulnerable to this type of infection.
Although there are several different types of nerve pain, CBD oil seems to be a very promising and effective treatment of nerve pain.
In addition, CBD oil has been proven to have several benefits that can help treat patients who are suffering from nerve pain. For instance, CBD oil has been proven to be an effective anti-inflammatory agent, which is why it is often recommended for people who suffer from arthritis.

What criteria did we evaluate to determine the above 7 best CBD oils for nerve pain?
There are many important factors to consider when purchasing CBD oils for nerve pain. That’s why we took the liberty to consider the following criteria before adding a CBD oil brand to our list of CBD oils for nerve pain.
The hemp and extraction methods used
The most preferred method of extraction for CBD oil is CO2 extraction. This is where they put carbon dioxide under maximum pressure and low temperatures to help isolate, preserve, and maintain the purity of the medicinal CBD oil. This method is safe and non-toxic, causes minimal ecological impact, and is readily available.
Quality control testing
We only chose CBD oils with “third-party” test results, as these are the most trustworthy. We also didn’t include oils that had harsh chemicals like propylene glycol or denatured ethanol in their ingredients.
Price & Quality
While price shouldn’t be the sole deciding factor when it comes to choosing a CBD oil, it’s an important consideration. We ranked these CBD oils based on quality, purity, potency, and customer feedback. We also added in our ranking that “the price should be low enough to make it affordable for most customers”.
We added this as an afterthought to our criteria, but we realized that there’s nothing more telling than the feedback given by real customers who buy and use these products. So, we included this as part of the determining factor for which CBD oils for nerve pain should be featured in our top 7 list.
At the end of the day, our goal is to make it easier for you to find high-quality CBD oils that work effectively in relieving nerve pain. We don’t want it to be more difficult than necessary, which is why we did the research and compiled this list of CBD oils for nerve pain.
How to use CBD Oil for Nerve Pain Relief

Pick your preferred method.
There are several ways that you can take CBD oil for nerve pain. The five main ways are sublingual, oral, topical, vaping, and ingestion. Sublingual allows the CBD to be absorbed through your mouth where it enters directly into your bloodstream.
Choose your preferred CBD oil.
The benefits of using CBD oils for nerve pain are numerous, but it’s important to choose an oil that works well for you. You can try one or all seven of these best CBD oils for nerve pain relief if necessary.
Regardless of the CBD product you use, it’s always smart to start small. This method of using CBD oil for nerve pain allows you to gauge how it works, and whether or not it will be effective in reducing your symptoms.

Tips for Taking CBD Oils for Neuropathy
Being that there are many methods in which to get your CBD oils for nerve pain, we wanted to share tips on each method. Below you’ll find tips to help you enjoy your CBD oils for maximum nerve pain relief.
Use CBD Oil Tincture
It’s easy to take CBD oil tincture for nerve pain. Start by placing a drop under your tongue using the dropper that comes with the bottle. Hold for 30 seconds, then swallow up to three times daily.
Apply CBD Oil Topically
You can apply pure or full-spectrum CBD oil topically on areas of your body where you feel pain. Just a word of caution; CBD oil is a powerful product and should only be applied topically in small amounts to avoid irritation.
Take CBD Oil Edibles
You can eat CBD oil edibles for pain relief for many different reasons. If you don’t like vaping or oils, this is another option that you can try. Start by adding a few drops of the oil onto your favorite dessert or candy and ingest as normal.
Will CBD oil make me high?
No, CBD oils won’t make you high since the THC level is 0.3% or below in most states. The “high” that you feel when using CBD oils for nerve pain comes from the oil’s ability to reduce inflammation and relax your body and mind.
Can CBD oil help shingles nerve pain?
Yes, CBD oils can relieve shingles nerve pain fast. Many studies have shown that using CBD oil for shingles nerve pain can help reduce inflammation and the risk of flare-ups.
Can CBD oil help with shoulder pain?
Yes, CBD oils can help relieve shoulder pain by reducing inflammation and stimulating your body to release endorphins. Endorphins are neurotransmitters that reduce your perception of pain and promote a general sense of well-being.
Are CBD oils good for arthritis?
CBD oils for nerve pain can also treat inflammation from arthritis. Just like with shingles and shoulder pain, CBD oils reduce inflammation in the affected area which helps to relieve discomfort.
Is CBD oil safe?
Yes, CBD oils for nerve pain are safe because they don’t activate the CB1 or CB2 receptors in your brain which makes them non-psychoactive. They contain no THC which means you won’t feel high from using them.
How to stop taking pain medications with CBD oil
If you’ve been taking opioids, antidepressants, certain medications for anxiety or insomnia, you may want to talk to your doctor about whether you should reduce or stop the use of these drugs when using CBD oil for nerve pain.
Taking CBD oil for nerve pain doesn’t mean you have to stop using other treatments. However, it’s important that you don’t increase your dosages of any medications when starting on CBD oils.
Again, make sure to talk to your doctor and work closely with them as you start using CBD oils for nerve pain.
CBD Oil Side Effects
There are minimal side effects from taking pure CBD oil. You may feel drowsy since it’s an anti-inflammatory, which means you won’t feel high from using it.
You could develop a dry mouth due to dehydration, but this is easily fixed by drinking plenty of water throughout the day. CBD oils for nerve pain are a natural way to treat shingles, arthritis, shoulder and back pain.
What strength CBD oil for nerve pain is best?
It depends on the strength of your pain. The higher the THC level, the more intense the CBD oils will be. For chronic pain and nerve conditions like shingles, we recommend using something that will provide long-term relief with a lower THC level.
Of course, all of this is dependent upon finding a pure CBD oil that doesn’t have any synthetic additives or extra ingredients. You can find what you’re looking for at Penguin CBD or Everest.
The Best CBD Oils for Nerve Pain
What’s the best way to take CBD oil for nerve pain in the face?
You can take CBD oil for nerve pain in the face using a CBD lotion or spray that you apply topically. You can reapply as needed throughout the day, but make sure to keep it away from your eyes.
How long does CBD oil take to work on shingles?
CBD oils for nerve pain should start working within 1-2 hours. The more you use them, the better they’ll work and the longer it will take before your acute symptoms start to subside.
How long does CBD oil last?
It depends on how much CBD oil you consume and what strength it is. It’s important to always follow the instructions on the bottle and to not consume more than directed.
How to store CBD oils for nerve pain?
CBD oils should be stored in a cool, dark place and away from children to protect them from possible harmful effects. Always check the expiration date before you buy CBD oils for nerve pain so you know how long you have before they expire.
With all of this information in mind, it’s easy to see why CBD oils for nerve pain are so popular among those experiencing chronic pain. The safety profile of these products is unmatched by other types of medications that are often prescribed to people with nerve injuries or other serious conditions.
Since they contain no THC, you won’t feel high or groggy when using CBD oils for nerve pain. Some brands even offer lotions and balms that are meant to be applied directly to the area of your body where you’re feeling discomfort. Just make sure that it’s legal in your state before purchasing CBD oils online since some states require a prescription to use them.
In conclusion, CBD oils are a great way to relieve pain, inflammation, and other symptoms associated with nerve injuries or conditions. If you’re looking for a natural way to treat your pain, CBD oils may be the right choice for you.
