Cool Dx w/ Occipital Neuralgia...

I've seen `MANY' Dr's to dx my head prssr, temple prssr/pain, tight
neck ache, ear-fullness, spasms triggered by weather. Recent
C-Spine MRI showed spurs & bulges in C1 to C5. Neuro's dismissed
me. My Rheumatologist suggested a D.O. Neurologist. This guy put
his hands on my neck & rt. side of head then pushed gently. I was
sent to the ceiling in pain. He found 4 trigger points he said felt
like ropey-muscle. He simply said it was obvious Occipital Neuralgia!
Suggested I go to a PT & learn home traction to pull C1,2,3 apart.
Did this doc have the magic answer to my head-prssr & full ears?
I've been on drugs & misc. for yrs w/ a simple `some conditions
have no name!' Evidently posture re-alignment is needed because
the sub-occipitals are atrophy. He said this is often 1 cause of TMJ
& postural hd-prssr at a computer. Appreciate anyone writing me
abt this or traction info etc. My head & upper neck had spasms for
2 days after appt. Are D.O's more into these things than the top
surgeons I wasted yrs. going to?
