Common Questions and Answers about Scalp sore headache

sore

It feels like when you have worn a pony tail in your head all day and you take it out and your scalp is a bit sore from your hair being pulled at all day. The sore spot is only on the one area of my scalp. I guess you could say in an area about as big as a quarter. I do wear by hair pulled back sometimes, but not always and it still feels sore in that same spot. I dont understand what it could be. Should I have a dermatolgist check it out?
i have been having waves of dizziness, pressure on my face, as well as nausea spells, and my scalp is super sensitive.... i read somewhere that this could be a tension headache? if it is then how do i get rid of this? It has been happening for the past 4 days or so and nothing seems to help it. I even wake up with my head throbbing, sore throat, stuffy nose. Does anyone know what this could be? I dont have medical insurance so its hard for me right now to see a dr for this.
scalp tenderness (tend to move around the head), numbing/tingling sensation on right and left arms as soon as I wake up from a nap/sleep, sore neck, stabbing pain in the back and sore muscles and shoulders. I am, you might say experiencing anxiety and stress right now because no one can diagnose what is causing these to begin with. My only concern is to know what is causing the warm sensation on my scalp (head) and the pain, so that I can properly manage it.
A tension headache is the most common headache.A tension headache generally produces a diffuse, usually mild to moderate pain over your head. Many people have the feeling to having a tight band around their head. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/tension-headache/DS00304/DSECTION=treatments%2Dand%2Ddrugs .In many cases, there's no clear cause for a tension headache. Fortunately, effective treatments for tension headaches are available.
It is so tender it hurts to touch my hair. My ear on the same side is sore and I have a small knot behind it,which is also tender.What should I do?
On Monday I noticed that when I just touch my hair or lightly touch my scalp, it makes my headache worse and it's more of a stabbing pain. When I stop touching my hair or scalp, the stabbing pain goes away. Anybody ever hear of this type of thing?
for about 10 days after, i experienced a fairly persistent headache in the same spot at the base of my skull on the left side with tingling and numbness which rotated around different parts of my head and face, sometimes leaving sore spots on my scalp which would fade away pretty quickly. i also became more and more light-headed and experienced muscle weakness in my arms and legs and intense fatigue as the days passed.
In the past two days, red bumps have appeared in an area the size of a dime on the upper right rear of my scalp. They appear to be spreading and are slightly tender, sore to the touch. On the second day I am experiencing occasional stabs of pain from the area, similar to headache pains and short in duration. Rash, insect bite, serious?
I don't wear pony tails or braids because anything that pulls on my scalp gives me a headache. My scalp doesn't have sores and the area doesn't appear to be red, but my hair has thinned in the sore area. It isn't sore to touch it just constantly feels tender. I do suffer from allergies to dust, pollen, and cat dandruff. I often have sinus pressure around my temples and forehead. Could my sinus problems be causing my sore scalp?

Hi I have noticed that I have had something similar to yours. Mine was more like a sore and it kinda hurt when I touched it or my hair moved the wrong way for it and it hurt. But I have notice that the pain is gone. But I also have to take pain pills so........... I would suggest a Dermatologist for your head. But the pain shooting across you head I would suggest contacting your family doctor and have him refer you to a NEUROPATHIC doctor.
I too have had a tender scalp for about 3 months. It's been off and on. I usually notice it when I brush my hair. The tenderness is toward the right side of the crown and to theright of the top of my head. I take Ibuprophen to help, but it seems like it comes back. I'm 53 years old and don't do pony tails since I have short hair. I use Suave shampoo and Suave conditioner. I also use Suave hairspray. I don't feel any bumps; just the tenderness. It really bothers me. Can you help me?
I'm having the same symptoms - ear ache, sore throat, sore scalp. My symptoms have all appeared pretty rapidly. I noticed my ear started hurting yesterday afternoon. Today, I noticed my throat hurt and my scalp has become increasingly sensitive to touch. Did you see a doctor? Did you take anything or do anything to relieve your symptoms? Thanks!
00 a.m. in the morning, so I have to get up, take a Motrin and put the heating pad on it. The heat seems to help. I woke up this morning again at 3:00 a.m. and it was also hurting at the base of my skull at the back. Sometimes it's tender at my left temple area. However, I've had very similar pain before, but it was on the opposite side of my head, although not in the same area. The last time I had this pain was maybe 6 months to almost a year ago on the right side.

A pharmacist could give you a nasal spray to help. Or you could have a headache which is forming into a migraine. A migraine is when the pain is sharp and situated in one area. If you find your sensitive to light and noise is hurting your head then its probably a migraine. I suggest take a painkiller and go to bed with the curtains closed and no noise to help.
The headaches are on the right side originating at my temple. The temple becomes really sore after the headache if I am able to get rid of it. I am also experiencing what feels like a crick in my neck on the same side. Also, my scalp is tender, & hurts when I brush it. I have also found two small sores on my scalp that come & go, almost with the headaches. Another thing I have noticed lately is I can feel my pulse on the same side of my head if am laying on it.
I have had the same symptoms and currently have an outbreak this is the first time a canker sore has appeared on my upper gum on the outside with my half head headache for five day snow. How long till my sore goes away. No stress I think mine is medication related tramadol.
I have a headache that occurs on the back of my head, about a hand-span above the tip of my ear. The pain is like a pressure wave that comes every three or four seconds. It's not agonizing but it hurts. It started three days ago. The first day just touching my head where the pain came from -- no matter how lightly I touched it -- felt sore. By day two that symptom was gone., I get these type headaches about once or twice a year.
Dear Dr., I've had 2 bumps in near proximity to one another on the top of my scalp for several years. Recently, I believe one of the bumps has grown larger, is presently about the size of an M&M. I am not experiencing any pain or hair loss. Are these bumps cysts? Is there any need to have them removed?
I experienced them at least once a month and they have always been centered around my left eyeball (the bump is located on the left side of my scalp about an inch and a half behind my hairline, directly in line with my left eyeball). For about the past week I have been experiencing an awful headache every day and have had a feeling of a sort of sore spot on my left temple for the past 6 days.
I think the creepy crawly sensation on my scalp started around the time of the headache but can't be sure. The headaches started in Spain I was there for a few days and on the 3rd day I had a vertigo attack, well that's what my doctor said I had, I felt fine after a few minutes but later in the day I developed a migraine. The dull ache in my head has been ongoing since then. The creepy crawling sensation may have started in Spain after the verigo attack I really don't know.
