Occipital neuralgia causes intense pain, like a sharp electric shock in the back of the head and neck causing pain when moving the neck, pain in one or both sides of the head, sensitivity to light are a few symptoms. Causes can be trauma to the back of the head, neck tension, tumors, cervical disk disease are some causes.
