NINDS:44 Occipital neuralgia is a distinct type of headache characterized by piercing, throbbing, or electric-shock-like chronic pain in the upper neck, back of the head, and behind the ears, usually on one side of the head.

MalaCards: Occipital Neuralgia, also known as cervico-occipital neuralgia, is related to headache and cervicitis. An important gene associated with Occipital Neuralgia is IL2RB (interleukin 2 receptor, beta). Affiliated tissues include eye, b cells and medulla oblongata.
