Unhappy Feels Like Someone is Pulling My Hair!!

I have been having constant headaches from morning until night. I have seen a doctor and was given medication, which did absolutely nothing. My head hurts on the top of my head and actually feels like someone is pulling my hair. Has anyone else had experiences with this type of headache that really hurts!! I am eating ibuprofren constantly!! Any suggestions!

Re: Feels Like Someone is Pulling My Hair!!

Hey Buffalosnow, I'm in your neighbor, Rochester. It sounds like a migraine. My daughter suffers from them. After a lot of drugs (Imitrex, Zomig, and others) and doctors (pediatricians, psychologists, psychiatrists, neurologists), we found a couple of things that have helped. A friend suggested taking 2 Tylenol and 2 Ibuprofen together. This seemed to work for her. She's also into acupuncture therapy. Her last headache lasted a month, along with vomiting and nausea. Since we've gone to the acupuncturist, her headaches are minor if at all. It's been nearly 3 months since she's had a severe one and her life seems to be getting back to normal. Hope you can find something that works. It took us several months.

Re: Feels Like Someone is Pulling My Hair!!

I am having the same kind of symptoms you are. I have a tightness on the top of my head. It's a dull pain and tightness. Sometimes it will run down the back of my neck. It also hurts when I jerk my head from side to side. My head feels like it weighs a ton. Also, if i press my finger down on my scalp it feels very tingly. Do you have any of those symptoms?

I also have those signs. Sometimes my head (hair) will itch and feels like millions of ants crawling and stinging.It really is bad when i try to brush it or scratch it, the hurt is so bad. My scalp gets tight too and my hair feels like it is so heavy. The headaches are bad also, goes down neck in the shoulder blades.
