Can the vagus nerve be affected in the case of Occipital Neuralgia, stemming from dysfunction of the Atlas or the neck?


I had an Occipital Nerve stimulator and radiofrequency ablation (RFA) at many levels from C2 to C6 and my headaches are worse. After that I unfortunately fell. How long should I wait to come for a consultation?


If I'm a responder to occipital nerve blocks, would I be a candidate for this procedure?


I've suffered for 3 years with constant pressure and stabbing. It started as a weird pressure feeling then there was dizziness and balance issues. I have tried many different treatments. Is it possible that there is an artery or muscle that is compressing that nerve that is creating the pressure?


Do I need to have a recent MRI of my cervical spine?


Do you repair spinal stenosis?


If there is ongoing pain around the ears and jaws, with occasional flares of the occipital area, is the cause easily determined for surgery?


Have you seen more bleeding and / or pain control issues in redheads?
