Re: Burning sensation in back of head

Hello, I would first recommend that you start a headache diary that can be found on the internet. It will keep track of your headaches and how bad they are. It might also help you find some triggers. It may also help your doctor. At first mine was a surprise due to the number of headaches I was actually having.

Usually migrainers CT scans are clear, they are used to rule out more serious diseases. Your doctor may want to send you to a neurologist. There are daily medications that can decrease the number and seriousness of your headaches. There are also abortive medications that can be used for them. Phenigrine is one that comes to mind when you say you are vomiting.

Good luck, you are not losing your mind. If your doctor is unsure of how to proceed ask to see a neurologist.
