Ziv M. Peled , M.D. Presents Burning Migraine Questions for April 18, 2019. Dr. Peled discussed he following questions:

0:41 Can thyroid surgery cause occipital neuralgia?

1:58 Why are migraines on the left side or the right side, and why not on both sides?

7:35 Is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) an option to potentially lessen the pain of occipital neuralgia?

9:18 Following an occipital nerve block, I had a pronounced dent in the back of my head where my neurologist injected (it is tissue thinning, secondary to steroids). Is that a common reaction? Will it resolve with time?

13:42 Are nerve blocks mandatory prior to surgery? How long do they last?

16:50 You talk about removing a piece of muscle in the neck. How is that not going to leave me paralyzed?

21:12 You are a plastic surgeon; why are you operating on the brain and spinal cord for these operations?

23:05 Is the pain in the tongue associate with occipital neuralgia?

23:40 Can these operations be done arthroscopically (or endoscopically)?
