I am in desperate need of some info......Husband has been diagnosed with Occipital Neuralgia, but some of his symptoms do not fit......
He seems to be having the occipital headaches, but he is also having problems with red eyes and dilated blood vessels in his eyes.  Also, he has been unable to work since October 29, because any type of exertion makes the headaches and red eyes way worse. 
Also, he has a painful lump on the right side top of neck-base of skull area that hurts when pressed on.  Another thing, he gets a fluid feeling above his temple area.
He had the occipital nerve block done approximately two weeks ago, is taking neurontin and elavil.  The nerve block worked well for about a week.
Does any of this sound familiar to anyone.....Thanks for any info.
