Does anyone else experience a severe tingling burning stabbing scalp that makes you want to scratch it , 4 days solid now , anyone know why and what to do thanks x

My scalp will feel like this when I have a flare or headache. I've also noticed that the longer I've had fibro, the more sensitive the skin gets generally. I use an excellent shampoo that used to be everywhere but only can be found in Wal-Mart now (in my area, NE). It's called: Clear. It works better than Head and Shoulders as far as I'm concerned. Also, don't wash hair all the time. That is asking for trouble. Every few days and you give your scalp a rest and your hair will be less likely to fall out.

Hi Devonlady, IV suffered with my head for a good few years. Mine feels tender to the touch, some times it's that bad I can't wash it . Also I can feel pain all over my head, it hurts so much I can't focus on anything else. They said at hospital it was migraines but it was no headache. And the stabbing pain you feel is like you've been hit with an hammer and it's echoing all on top of the head. I don't really know to explain it, but it's not nice . I'm on amitriptyline, that does help. I hope IV helped you A abit Devon,xx
