Occipital Neuralgia

I was diagnosed with occipital neuralgia several years ago, before celiac disease diagnosis.  Symptoms that led to that diagnosis included constant migraines for a decade.  The doctor said that it was due to osteoarthritis at C2-C3 on the spine.  I had radiofrequency neurotomy several years ago to disable the third occipital nerves but was told that they would come back after a year or two.


Post-diagnosis of celiac disease, I have had only three migraines, all traceable to accidental glutening, plus occasional stabbing neck pain when it's cold and humid out.  The gluten-free diet certainly feels like it reduces flareups of ON.

oct 2013 - biopsy showed celiac, went strictly gluten-free
