PMID: 33968466.


Occipital neuralgia (ON) is a paroxysmal disorder involving lancinating pain that originates in the neck or skull base with superior radiation toward the apex. ON more commonly occurs in patients with other coexisting headache disorders. There are limited data regarding the prevalence of ON. This study aims to demonstrate the prevalence of ON in a community hospital-based headache clinic.
