I just got diagnosed a few weeks ago with Fibromyalgia. I have had scalp tenderness on and off for years. I've talked to a few of my doctors about it. No one has given me answer.
I've written this info before but I think it's worth another comment on scalp pain. I thought for many years my scalp pain was caused by my firbromyalgia. I was recently diagnosed with polymyalgia rhumatica. Not only was my scalp sore but my shoulder was always painful. I had stiffness in my back & hips upon getting out of bed. I urge you to have your doctor to do blood tests to confirm that it might just polymyalgia. Untreated it can lead to blindness. Google it to see all the information on this auto immune disease. I am currently on 15 mg. of steroids & methotrextate(MTX) ( an old cancer drug). I went off the steroids and had a major flare. I could hardly walk for the pain I felt & I was so tired I went from the bed to sofa. I had no energy at all. Within 3 days of taking the steroids I couldn't believe how much better I felt. The doctor said I got off the steroids too fast & didn't give the MTX a chance to work.I hope this info is helpful.
I think it does because
We all have nerve endings all over our body and head!
I get very tender on my head
And it moves all over my head
At different times be on back, one side or the other or on my
Top of my head !! The transmitter in our brain tells our nerves there is pain and it goes to that parts of our body & head !! Crazy but true!!
Yes it is. Fibro is a muscle disease, therefore it effects everything, even your eyes. I learned that last year.
Yes! I have it also, I've been telling doctor's for years. Burning itching pain constantly. Even tried emu oil on my scalp takes the edge off sometimes. Also losing my hair. It's gray now and very thin. My scalp feels like it shrunk it used to be very smooth and round now I feel lumps an indentations. Doctor thinks I'm crazy. I've had so many symptoms and illnesses, tried so many different medications, cannabis, CBD oils, holistic doctor's, acupuncture, trigger point shots, diet's in the last 47 yrs. I'm giving up! One Day At A Time! God Bless all of you fighting this disease. Hug's 🤗
The scalp pain, sores, dryness, tenderness and headaches are definitely Fibromyalgia. Now I would like to share something I found that is better than pain relaxers and also skin products that cause us to rash. First use an empty plastic container. Get some Epsom Salt, and some Lavender scented oil, and also add baking soda. Shake it and wet your body in the shower. Pour some in your hands and spread it on your arms, face, head, neck and wherever you can reach. It smells so good and it makes your skin soft. I have Seborrheic Dermatitis. This simple recipe works great to take away my ugly, flaky skin and make it feel soft all day. It helps my muscles, helps me relax and is very easy to do. Put equal parts except for the lavender. You will only need a few drops depending on the size of the bottle and how strong you want it. It will help your muscles to loosen but how it has helped my skin problems is amazing. I just found this out by accident a week ago. So if you are like me and have trouble getting in and out of tubs because it is too hard, then try that for the shower. It made my headache go away, but when we have a flare-up where the scalp is sore and you feel a sore on top, just wait until it goes away because I have found nothing for that. I am turning in and going to bed but I wanted to say hi to everyone and tell you all that it is worth trying. :)
