intermittent pain in my left lower part (little above left ear) of my head
I have a intermittent pain in my left lower part (little above left ear) of my head.These days my Blood pressure is on a higher side(never had a high BP till now).Its paining on the same spot time and again.Few months ago I experienced some nerve movement at the same spot.can you help me on this.
This is not the doctor-moderated forum, but I think I may know what is going on [based on my 30 years of living with nerve pain (neuralgia)]. The lesser occipital nerve braches off of the occipital nerve in the area yiou describe. I suspect compression, a lesion, or other trauma involving the left occipital nerve. Get it checked by a reputable neurologist or pain specialist before treatment gets too difficult.
