Every now and then, my scalp is super-sensitive to touch. Even very light touch causes it to hurt all over. My mother has never been able to wear a hat for the same reason. Both of us are headache sufferers, but I don't know if this scalp sensitivity is part of a headache syndrome or something else. Anyone have similar reactions?
I have the same problem, started a few years ago. I cant even wear my hair up anymore--my scalp gets very sore, and then when I take my hair down--it really hurts too. I dont know what is causing it, but I can relate.
i get the same thing alot i find mine happens most when my sinuses are inflamed what ido is wash my hair alot i think it soaking it in hot water that helps then i take sudafed but it is so sore and scary but it get better after i take meds for sinuses and also ive been under alot of stress also
Do you all have headaches or migraines? I believe what you guys are describing is called "allodynia" you can google it and get more information, but I get this also and everything that I have found on this is related to migraine.
Hi Frango - I looked up allodynia, and yes, it does seem to describe my symptoms! Very interesting to finally hear that what I've been feeling is a known phenomenon. I don't usually get it at the same time I get headaches, but I do suffer from headaches as well, some of them migraines.
