Tue, May 26 9:49am · "Electric Shock" type pain in my scalp! in Chronic Pain

I have this type of pain on both sides of my head in the back. Was diagnosed with occipital neuralgia. I get shots to block these nerves every three months. Relief lasts about that long for me.

@learningstudent I hear you. I have a fast heart rate, 145 at rest and higher when moving. I also have the lightheadedness. Here’s what I do. My cardiologist found that the lightheaded was from a blood pressure problem. So, I take fleccainide for the fast heart rate and have recently started lisinopril for blood pressure. I had my vitamin and mineral levels checked and was low on vitamin d. Started taking vitamin d once a day and that is making a difference in my lightheaded and dizziness. I would like to recommend that you ask for a cardiology appointment if you haven’t already. Ask questions about both tachycardia and brachycardia.
All the best to you, I hope you find the answers you need.

I have osteoporosis, fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis in my feet, knees, shoulders. I have head pain; occipital neuralgia in the back up and over the top, auricular neuralgia on the left side of my face from bones sclerosis. It just strikes whenever it wants to. I have been getting injections every three months for this. I injured my knees from a fall, tears in the meniscus. Decided not to go with surgery at this point because the tear is small. I use diclofenac pain cream for that. I also use the diclofenac cream for arthritis. I had Morton’s neuroma in one foot that I did have surgery for. That helped with the pain but not the arthritis in my toes. For lower back pain and neck pain I see a chiropractor.
With so many areas of pain they like to clump everything into one so I believe that’s why they’ve come up with this new term.

I had lots of testing to try to determine the cause of my pain. Everything came back normal. So, they gave me this label. I think that’s happening a lot when no one can figure out what’s happening. There is nothing different prescribed for pain relief. Just do the best with what you have and let them know if anything changes. 😊

Me too. I was diagnosed with this a year ago. What they basically said was that I feel things 10 times more than the average person.

Hopeful33250 I was taking Omeprazole and my doctor said that the side effects I was having couldn’t be from the Omeprazole because the things I was experiencing were not listed as side effects in the Omeprazole literature.

@summertime4 I have osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia along with a meniscus tear in my knee. I use this gel all the time. I gave some to my sister. She used it on her knees and had pain relief in one day. She now has a prescription from her doctor to get her own tube.
