Ask a Neurologist and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and thank you for your question.
It can either be trigeminal neuralgia where you feel symptoms like numbness and tenderness associated with the pain.
or it can be occipital neuralgia. Both of them are confirmed by a physical examination performed by a neurologist. Trigeminal reflex exam is necessary to evaluate further. So I would suggest to see a neurologist for further evaluation.
Please get back to me if you have any further questions. Thank you.
