a-1 home care homecare corona del marIf you feel pain at the base of your skull or in the back of your neck, you may have occipital neuralgia, a condition characterized by inflamed or injured nerves running from the spinal cord through the scalp.  Other symptoms may also include sensitivity to light, headaches, migraines, tender scalp, and pain during neck movement.  Because it is often confused for other types of headaches, doctors cannot detect a cause for it.  Up to this point, you may have had otherwise good health, but if these symptoms have been occurring lately, you may want to get a medical opinion before things get worse.  This condition has also been associated with the following:

  • Osteoporosis
  • Head trauma
  • Neck tumors
  • Infection
  • Diabetes
  • Cervical disc disease
  • Blood vessel inflammation
  • Gout

Top-Notch In-Home Care for Migraines, Occipital Neuralgia and Other Symptoms

When your head is throbbing from electric shock-like pain for hours at a time, it is virtually impossible to do anything.  Many of A-1 Home Care’s caregivers and licensed vocational nurses have a background in physical therapy; our trained professionals can help apply cranial osteopathy (a.k.a., head massage) to relieve some of the pain and help you relax.  Our round-the-clock certified nurse aides will also help with chores such as cooking, cleaning, laundry and transportation anywhere in Corona del Mar.  The most important priority for you is to relax and rest from doing anything that might trigger the pain.
