Scalp/head Soreness

Scalp/head Soreness

Has anyone experienced soreness or pain when touching or even scratching your head or scalp? I don't have dandruff or dry scalp. I've just noticed that even if I reach up and touch my head it's sore or hurts. (However you want to say it.)
Or is it just me or because of my daily migraines?
Thanks!

Hi there yes my scalp hurts all the time and it's a symptom of Fibromyalgia called Neuralgia
Scalp pain can be caused by inflamed nerves, skin or blood vessels.

I find that anywhere there are nerves there can be pain. I think it all depends on what striain there has been in a given area and if muscles have tightened on the nerves. I have had pain all over the top of my head and think it comes from stress. Muscles everywhere can become tightened and contract depending on what we are doing. I have found that gently massaging my scalp everyday has helped relax the muscles and rid me of any pain most times. If you see a massage therapist they may be able to help you with this. Hope this is helpful. Good luck!

I suffer with this also. Sometimes even brushing my hair can be extremely painful. Unfortunately I haven't found anything that relieves this as I also suffer from this on my arms legs and face so wish I knew how to stop it. I was told that it is the nerves being over sensitive and sending pain signals all the time.
