Question: Tingling scalp headache

 Cozzie - Mon Nov 02, 2009 8:03 am

I am fit and healthy with no history of any illness. However I am becoming very concerned with a tingling headache and sensitive scalp I have been having for 6 months. I visited my GP 3 months ago who said it's just nerve endings and it will go away. The headache has become severe and tingling all over my head with extremely sore scalp at times. I cannot sleep with the pain and irritability of it and often awake with pain in my eyes. I am going travelling for 12 months in Jan 2010 and am keen to resolve this before I go. Please can you help? Thanks

User avatar Hello,Trichodynia is a peculiar condition in which the patient complains of pain or burning pain of the scalp.It may be associated with hair loss.Anxiety or depression may accompany or be the cause of these symptoms.Hypersensitive nerves have been implicated too.Biofeed back and relaxation techniques do help.Some may require anti anxiety or antidepressant medication.Ok?Wishing you speedy recovery.
