The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke defines occipital neuralgia as a rare neurological condition that involves shooting, shocking, throbbing, burning, or aching pain and headache that generally starts at the base of the head and spreads along the scalp on one or both sides of the head.
It involves the occipital nerves, which run from the area where the spinal column meets the neck, up to the scalp at the back of the head.
