I suffer from migraines and occipital neuralgia, an incurable pain condition which manifests in chronic neck pain and headaches. I decided to have an occipital nerve stimulator implanted to help me control the pain. I also have two other chronic illnesses - chronic Epstein-Barr virus and fibromyalgia.
