The occipital nerve travels through various layers of muscle, and these muscles can entrap the nerve. Sitting in a draft could conceivably cause these muscles to tighten up and/or spasm, pulling on the nerve and causing trauma.
I recommend seeing a neurologist or pain specialist for specific therapiess to reduce your pain.
