I was just diagnosed with Occipital Neuralgia this past Wednesday; 3 out of 100,000 people dx yearly. Anyway, I'm having a hard time coping with this news. I don't want to be in pain the rest of my life. I'm so tired of being "sick" all the time. I hate having to cancel things that I love to do because I'm having a flare up or because my fatigue is through the roof. So I was just wondering if anyone had any coping tips and pain relief ideas too!
