What causes neck pain and facial numbness while suffering from cervicogenic headache?

I have cervicogenic migraines and a history of cervical spine surgery (c4-c6) which caused more issues plus occipital neuralgia. I had a very red left eye with different head pain than my usual. I ve had severe neck and head pain only on left side for 5 days now. face feels a bit numb along with severe jaw and cheek pain. double vision. left side of face starting to hurt in cheek/upper jaw area.

I think that the term was vestibular migraines. Vestibulitis is another possible condition that may cause such symptoms. Getting evaluated by a Neurologist is necessary for a correct diagnosis.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
