Occipital Neuralgia caused by surgery
I am 2 weeks post op and since surgery have zapping, burning pain in the pack right side of my head. NS diagnosed me with occipital neuralgia due to C2 nerve damage from surgery. UGH! it's worse than my chiari symptoms! Anyone else develop this post-op. Am praying nerve is just angry and inflamed from surgery and this is not long-term. Started Lyrica last night. Hello weight gain! Very upset about this. If not for this, I would have said surgery was a breeze!
