Burning Head Sensation

What are possible causes for a burning sensation on top of my head?  Had blood work and 3 mris (brain, neck and lower back).  Everything came out perfectly normal.  Was sent for these tests by a neurologist so he didn't seem concerned since tests came out good.  What else should I be having checked?  It is very annoying and is making me nervous.  Any suggestions?

Thanks for sending me the link.  I have been on that before.  A lot of the posts there say stress or anxiety providing all medical testing comes out normal.  There is another thing called occipital neuralgia which seems similar to what I have so I will ask my neuro when I see him.  A lot of this could be related to nerve damage in my neck, but I am going to therapy to try to strengthen the muscles there.  I just want this feeling to go away.  I think it is more annoying than pain.  But thank you for responding.

Lizzie, did you ever figure out what the burning sensation in your head came from? My mom is going through the same thing ever since she had a rolling warehouse door fall down on her head. The doctors confirmed nerve damage and she does it and physical therapy. She also has frequent dizziness and tingling down her spine. She has become frustrated with her neurologist because they cannot determine why she gets the burning sensations in her head. Her MRI's also came back positive so they seem to think that she is just crazy or stressed out. She also complains about Serge is going through her body. She says it almost feels like a vibrator is on her back. I am anxious to know if you got anywhere with this.
