Occipital neuritis

Hi all. After years of occasional migraines with aura, then more frequent bouts recently, I was hospitalised with several auras a day, accompanied by a horrible pain in the back of my neck and was diagnosed with ON. Am now out of hospital but with no advice about what to do, what to avoid etc. and just a few co-codamols. I don’t have a neuro at present and no mention was made of a connection with my MS, though I’m pretty sure there is one, it being a specific nerve pain. Has anyone else had this please and if so, is there anything you can do about it? It went off somewhat in hospital, probably due to resting, but is now back with a vengeance!
