I'm trying to figure out what is going on and thought I'd throw this out on the boards and see if anyone can relate.
For a while now I have been getting different sensations like headaches, but not really. (of course I get plenty of headaches too, yuck!). This is confusing me. It is almost like something is pressing into my scalp in multiple areas. Burns but also cold and sharp. It may be in the front one moment, the next it is on the side or on the back of my head. I get more of them in the back of my head than anywhere, but as I said before, they can be anywhere. right now these "hot spots" are on my forehead above my eyebrows, and also almost straight through on the back of my head. But it doesn't feel like the whole head is involved but rather surface spots, if that makes sense. Seems to be connected with my neck because as I move around, the burny spot will move somewhere else. Also often there is a "vibration" involved, especially when it is on the back of my head.
The past 3 days or so this has increased in frequency and severity. I wondered if it is what they call cluster headaches, but as I have read about this, it is definitely not as severe as a cluster headache.
Surviving chronic pain one day at a time, praying for a reprieve because living another 40 years like this doesn't sound too fun!
