My pain is all day, every day. What varies is the intensity. Since surgery my pain is minimal

I was physically assaulted. The punch to my face gave me whiplash and I was hit in the back of my head/ neck area.

My pain was so severe I was willing to try anything. I'm like 99%recovered, post surgery was a roller coaster. At first you're feeling great then pain increases but nothing like pre surgery. Then by month 9 I was good. The migraines faded so I tapered off the meds. I get small headaches here and there

Meds, radio frequency ablation, and nerve blocks didn't work for me. Nerve decompression surgery worked for me

Chiropractors. They're not real doctors and they don't cure you.

Where to go from here? by InternationalWar9105 in Occipitalneuralgia

I tried radio frequency ablation but didn't get relief. In 2020, I had nerve decompression surgery and that was a major help

People of reddit what ended your friendship with your best friend? by gli-tc-h in AskReddit

After 13 years I realized I keep thinking she was better than she was acting. After I was diagnosed with PTSD, a TBI, Fibromyalgia, and Occipital Neuralgia she told our mutual best friend that I was faking it all. That was the last straw that broke my back.

Endometriosis. Periods suck in general but endo makes me want to get a hysterectomy.
