I have severe pain at the left back of my head just above hairline. Extreme pain. The pain started about a month and was only periodic. It is now much worse and is a constant pain. Heat helps to relieve the pain along with tylenol.

Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.
The likely cause for your recurrent headache is occipital neuralgia. It is common in diabetics.

Consult your doctor for examination and tests. You may require a nerve block for relief.
Till then continue taking tylenol.

I hope that answers your question.
