Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Your symptoms seem to be related to occipital neuralgia, probably due to neck arthritis.
In my opinion the symptoms don't seem to be related to blood clot.
To exclude this diagnosis, there are some examinations that should be done.
I recommended doing the following examinations:
A complete blood count
Coagulation time and bleeding time
an ultrasound of the neck
Meanwhile, I recommend using anti-inflammatory medication such as Ibuprofen 400 mg three times a day.
You can also try muscle relaxants such as Baclofen three times a day.
I also recommend using an anti inflammatory cream for local application such as Voltaren gel.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
