For the past couple (2) days I have had a small spot on the left side of my head that is very painful to the touch. It is about 2 inches above the top of my ear. I have felt both sides of my heads to check for lumps or if one side is bigger than the other. By doing so, I have found no lumps or anything out of the ordinary. It is just one spot, about an 1/2 inch in diameter. When I gently rub my fingers around the painful area I can feel about an inch around the entire spot that is also tender to the touch. I have not or nor do I remember doing any activity or strenuous work that might have hurt my head the way that it hurts. Should I wait it out a few more days or seek the advice of a health professional?
I have that kind of pain somewhat regularly, usually associated with stomach trouble, i.e., "something I ate" ain't doing me much good, IYKWIM...
I have the same kind of pain on my left forearm, 4 inches down from the elbow, right under the skin (but I cannot feel anything out of the ordinary if I run my finger hard over the spot), that one is quite unpleasant, almost like a burn. Nobody could ever tell me what these are, "nerve endings" trouble/miswiring/misfiring or something to that effect?
