Just diagnosed with occipital neuropathy

I've been having daily headaches, migraines lasting 2-3 days, and pain behind my right ear and side of my head, light headedness and fainting. I was just put on topiramate. He also wants me to go for physical therapy, but I want to do some exercises at home until after the holidays, there's too much on my plate right now. Has anyone been on this too? Seems I have more pain than not with all my conditions!

    I feel your pain dear. I have migraines and they last for days sometimes. I hurt in my right eye and all the way behind my right ear to the right side of my neck. It feels like I have a rubber-band across my right eye trying to pull my eye through the back of my neck. Sometimes it lasts for up to 60 hours. I take maxalt, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. So sorry you are in pain.

    Sorry I haven't replied! I've had a svere migraine still going on! The right area behind my ear, down my neck is horrid! I must go out as it's my mothers 90th bday today and the family is surprising her at a restaurant, great grand kids too except for my sons and families, another story! Be well, Thank you for caring!
