For years I have had periods of time (few days to a week) of my scalp being very sensitive to touch. Hurts when you wash your hair or scratch your head. Will go away then come back aweek for two later. Just wondering!?
The reason for scalp pain is myofacial pain. The layer of tissue known as facia gets inflamed , and causes extreme pain under the scalp. Myofacial pain syndrom goes with fibro.and I have yet to find a remedy
I have a disorder called frontal fibrosis alopecia. My scalp burns, itches, and my hair falls out. It's brutal and the flare ups are extremely painful. I was diagnosed with 2 biopsies which I requested from the dermatologist to find an answer. It's an inflammatory disease that scars the dermal tissue in the scalp. It not curable, but I have some control with prescription shampoo, medication and minoxidil.
I also have adrenal insufficiency as well as Hashimoto's and hyperparathyroidism.
Don't know if this helps you. I would encourage people to go to a dermatologist and get a biopsy done. I don't know the connection to my fibromyalgia. But when I see so many people on here with scalp problems it makes me wonder.
I also get a very SEVERE stabbing pain on my head/scalp that comes on intermittently. I've been diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia along with Fibromyalgia.
Yes! It hurts to touch and I feel pressure on top of my head. I don't understand why either. It almost feels like soft spots but burning sensations.
