I was really hoping for a suggestion as to why I may have developed an indentation in the top of my head. At first I thought I was crazy, and that it was impossible for that to happen, but over the last few months it seems to have grown and now anyone who feels the top of my head can easily feel it. It scares me, especially since my husband had brain surgery less than 2 years ago- (symptoms completely different of course) I am 35 years old, the only time I remember hitting my head really hard is when I was in elementary school and I fell and hit my head on a tile floor. I have had a history of passing out and having seizures but the doctors never figured out for sure what caused it and it hasn't happened for a few years. The best they came up with was blood sugar, and dehydration as a cause for those episodes, although I never had a MRI or anything of my head. I don't get pains from it, it may be a little tender if I press on the indent kind of hard. Is there any condition that would cause my skull to cave in? please help!
I noticed a dent on the front left side of my skull. I have headphones that I listen to everyday at work and the padding sits almost exactly on the spot of the dent. No real diseases that I know of and I'm not sure of any vitamin deficiency. I wouldn't be surprised though of a calcium deficiency. I'm kind of lactose intolerant and the only real dairy I eat is string cheese.
I feel like I have had a headache on the top of my head for the past two days, but I feel like I'm crazy and imagining the headache. Any suggestions on what kind of doctor to go to? I think I have to get a referral before I can go to a specialist.
Please!!! let me know the outcome of your doctors appointment with this issue. I have the same issues going on right now. My scalp has been very sensitive to touch. So i was massaging it in the shower and found a deep indention on the left side of my head above my ear. In 2010 i had radiation for my hyperthyroid issue and now i am hypo. I am not sure how long i have had the indentation just found it due to sensitive issue. I am 28 years old as well and two small kids and this is scary! I was viewing the post on lyme disease and back about 4 years ago i found a tick behind my ear and after reviewing the medical page on this disease i am wondering now if maybe i had this diease the whole time..because right after i was diagnosed with hyperthyroid i started having major joint swelling and was also diagnosed with rh. Doctors stated that thyroid issue was due to pregnancy never was tested for lyme disease. Making doctors appt today to be checked to clear that but please let me know what you found out
I think this message board goes way back before e-cigs were around. I think some of us have different reasons for our dents and Like I've said several times before my dents went away after I did several things: started eating better, added vitamins, stopped wearing my reading and sunglasses on my head. Over this past summer I got brave and started putting my glasses on top of my head again, it's just easier.....my dents started appearing again. So, I stopped....my dents stopped. Some people probably thing we are crazy, none of my doctors think it's anything and do not take me serious. last year I had a heart issue arise from a bad reaction from a medication that has messed up my heart, long story short....my blood pressure shot up so high, I had every test u can think of to make sure no damage was done to my heart, head, lungs....strokes, blood clots, etc. everything came out normal. So, I have learned to live with my dents that come and go and know there was no damage seen on my tests done on my head.
just a quick update still waiting to go and see the neurologist. However my doctor wanted to keep and "eye on me" in the meantime and i have now had a shed load of blood tests - included was vitamin deficiencies and thyroyd all of which are clear. I am still getting headaches on my left side and my vision goes blarred now and again. I am controlling the headaches with naproxen and paracetamol but htey are becoming less effective. I have changed my diet to see if this helps
Just came to chuck something out here. I'm 16, but I also have the same problem. A couple of months ago, I started to notice an indentation in my head on both sides just opposite the very middle of the top of my head, but the right side was deeper. Now, I just realized that about that same point in time, I also purchased a new set of headphones, which I noticed were really hurting the top of my head, even though they were barely touching it, and were not pressing down on it at all. I could not figure out why I was getting such pain, but slowly it subsided, and has now completely diminished, however, this is when I noticed the dents. I have also noticed that the dents noticeably fill when I do not use my headphones for an increased period of time. Not sure if I'm just spitballing here, but it seems too perfect timing-wise for it to be coincidence, which is why I will be trying a day or so of not using these headphones.
I just turned 43 & also have severe dents along the top of my head. The one on the right side of my head is much more severe and is almost 2 inches long & deep enough for the side of my pinky to easily fit in. Like many of the posts I have worn sunglasses on the top of my head for years and the nose rests are in the area of my dents. I also noticed I have a dent in the bone behind my ear where the arm of my sunglasses rest.
I went to a top rated head specialist/reconstructive plastic surgeon today. He never saw or heard of anything like it. I did do some research prior to my visit & also saw calcium deficiency as a possible cause. I informed him of the possible calcium deficiency, the fact I wear sunglasses all the time on top of my head, Vitamin A toxicity, I am an early bird & began menopause a couple of years ago, and even mentioned recent issues I have had with ear infections. He appreciated that I did research (although there are not that many cases of these symptoms) &ordered blood work ( Metabolic Panel & Calcium) & full skull x-rays. I did my blood work today & will go in the beginning of next week to get my full scale skull x-rays.
I just tonight found this thread & feel much better that I am not alone. From all the research I have done this is not very common so aren't we special?! I will update when I get my results back!
yes I can tell you because of the 5 indentations on my skull. This did not happen until my hyperthyroid and major depression hit me full blown. The both pretty much came at the same time. With a spinal injury as well, the doctors say it is related to major depression and not sure about the hyperthyroid. Mine has been goind on for 7 years now and feel I am in deep trouble with my anxiety going into the 10 level sometimes. Please let me know if you find out anything for me. I know most of my brain cells have gone to sleep from the major depression and other health related issues. Good Luck..

I am 68 and your head sounds identical to mine. Almost a reptilian look, and it fills up overnight (though not completely) and by 9/10 pm my whole pinky finger can fit along both sides.
Waiting for MRI results, Doc not worried at all.
Thanks for your post
I have noticed the same ridge running along the top of my head on both sides - the left side has a deeper ridge than the right. I have had a lot of intense pressure at the of of my head earlier this fall - sometimes feeling like I was upside down. This all started about four months ago.
Has anyone noticed a connection with spiritual enlightenment and the pineal gland?
I want you to go & join a group on Facebook called Got endorphins LDN? but all capital letters When you do the search, i take LDN for my fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue I also found a dent in my top of my head by my hairline too. LDN and iodine protocol pretty much help to me, Please come join and learn about this treatment for autoimmune and MS and fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue etc.
Guess what? I have one too.
I banged my head on the left side quite hard 10 days ago, went to A&E a few days later as I was getting severe head aches and the doctor said it was nothing to worry about, anyway yesterday when examining my head I found a dint in my head on the right hand side along the hairline, there is also a smaller one on the left hand side in the same area but I have not got a clue where it has come from. The one on the right hand side feels sensitive but I'm not sure if this is because I've been playing with it.
I've been feeling anxious over other health issues recently so I'm not sure if this has been a factor and I have also been trying to eat vegetarian recently so I may be lacking in vit D / calcium too, which all seem to be common possible causes.
Anyway this is weird but thanks to this post looks like I don't have much to worry about and I'm not entirely alone.
I have a doctor's appointment on Monday so I will mention it then.
Interesting read three days ago I discovered a soft spot on the top of my head where the part would fall, it doesn't hurt when pressed, but I also have been having issue with hay fever (lots of sneezing) recently which is a new thing to me. Getting very tired headachy and my ears seem off... Like pressure, I also sometimes find it hard to focus before I realise it I'm in a blank stare. I'm 30 this year and have never had any medical issues I live in NZ, hopefully we can all find out what this anomaly is. Thanks
Well it seems we are all in good company. I found my indentation on the left side of my part about a month ago. I just saw my dr. 2 weeks ago and she didn't seem too worried. Well, as of earlier today I have found my second indentation on the right side of my middle part. I am a diabetic with Neuropathy in my feet and I am anemic. I have recently lost 16 pds. the first 10 without really trying. This is starting to make me worried.
Hey, guys. Maybe a partial breakthrough, at least for the thyroid sufferers. I think I may have commented before. But I definitely have read this forum before and want to come back to update. I have had hypothyroidism since I was 14. I got a really good doctor recently after years of terrible ones. I showed him the dents, and he immediately ordered a bone density, as well as gut flora exam. Both came back deficient. I now have to be on a very strict, no grain, no milk diet until the symptoms of the gut flora deficiency goes away. Hope this helps, ciao.
I am reading all stories that align with my concerns about my own skull dents, but I see no "answers" - To those who have dents, top of the head, one side of the ridge or the other -- what was the conclusion?? What the dr. say? what did an MRI indicate? Is this related to Vitamin D deficiencies?? I did hit the top of my head really hard in Oct 2013, and wondering if maybe I made the dent… I'm worried.
I purchased new headphones about two months age and noticed indentations on both sides of my scalp about a month later. Doctored ordered x-ray was normal. My 'retro style' headphones have small pads on each side. After reading your post I put on my headphones and looked in the mirror. The indentations exactly corresponded to the location of the pads. Pressure, even light pressure, from an external device, such as headphones, can indeed form indentation of the skull. I will leave a post to see if the indentations resolves. I'm confident that pressure in at least one cause of this puzzle.
I should note that I often wear my headphones for 6 hours or more. Still, I'm surprised the scalp, or skull, is that fragile. Thanks Snoppy32 for your original and helpful post.
I just found this website and have been reading your post. I know it's been awhile since your last post but I would really appreciate knowing how you are and what you have found out. Please update as soon as you can. I hope all is well with you!
Have either of you found anything out? as I said a couple years ago, after I stopped wearing my glasses and sunglasses on my head, taking vitamins and eating healthier, my dents vanished. I wore glasses on my head constantly. My thyroid has been tested, CT scan, MRI, various other tests, all negative. Seems all doctors say the same thing: they've never seen anything like it. I never fell, or bumped my head. I noticed mine in my late 30's, I do my hair everyday so I would have noticed them (on opposite sides of my hair line) - but they suddenly just appeared one day. It still concerns me, even though they've vanished.
I freaked out when i notice this big dent on the top of my head. It runs from my
front of my head to my crown, like 4 to 5 inches along my head. So I see that I am not the only one to have it. what a relief!!!!!!. What causes this? I never noticed it till about 3 weeks ago.
no one really has came back with answers. I also freaked out a few years ago, as I was sitting on the couch talking to my husband and ran my hand across the top of my head and felt mine, he asked if I had bumped my head recently. I had not! A few days later I noticed another one on the other side of my head. I was so scared, thinking my skull was caving in. I went to my family doctor and he didn't take it serious and acted as tho it had been there since I was a child, I wash, blow dry and straighten my hair daily and know that they WERE NOT THERE! I started doing research and came across this, I never drank milk or took vitamins. my mother and grandmother both have/had osteoporosis, so I thought maybe my bones were weakening and I needed to start taking care of them. I started taking vitamins, adding fruits and veggies in my diet (still not much into milk) then I realized I wore my regular glasses and sunglasses on my head all day, as soon as I stopped that a long with my diet changes, they went away. They've been gone for over a year. I still check for them all the time. I did suffer migraines my whole life and suffer one of those one in a million heart defects from the med and started seeing a new family doctor and he has ran so many tests on me and I have to thyroid issues, no brain tumors, or anything like that. So, at least my new doctor put me at ease on any of that. I do know it was very scary!!!
I am 51 y.o female. First off let me say that almost everyone has a Vit. D deficiency. I too have a dent in the crown of my head. I have been having severe neck pain and headaches for the last mo. since I have noticed this indentation. I can't believe how common this is, and thought I would have a hard time finding something on the net! Glad to know I'm not just "crazy!"
You are definitely not crazy, what is crazy is- no one can ever truly figure out WHY we have the dents! With technology today, you would think they could figure it out. I believe that not enough of us have went to the same doctor and that they believe that we are crazy and it's been there from childhood, or falls or accidents. They don't believe that they've just suddenly appeared out of nowhere.
I have just discovered the indented lines are formed due to infection of viruses and bacteria. This infection resulted because our immune system is weak due to whatever reasons including vitamin deficiency. Brain infection can come from vector borne diseases like lyme and mosquito encephalitis. When our body immunity is weak, viruses, bacteria and parasites flourish and so no point taking vitamins first because these creatures will flourish more with the vitamins. The key is to get rid of these creatures and build our immune system with proper exercise and food and find a natural therapy to get rid of the viruses, bacteria and parasites. Getting rid of our allergies will also help improve our immunity. For the last few years, my health was bad and I was near to death. I had a number of indented lines on my skull. I spent over $100k trying to find answers and also attended therapy courses. Now my skull lines have decreased and my overall health is OK. Just remember that you need a total approach to solve health issues and it is normally not just one way and definitely not a fall during childhood and now the lines beginning to appear.
thank you for your comment, I have been dent free for quite awhile now. I do live a healthier life style now. I have went thru some unexpected illnesses throughout the past 10 years of my life where I am sure my immune system was at it's lowest. What is sad is, where I come from the doctors want to tell me that my dents were always there and didn't take any time to figure it out. I pretty much healed them on my own. I hope everyone finds comfort and answers!! Thank you Rantan
After reading yours it occurred to me that I haven't felt the top of my head in a very long time. Much to my surprise, my dent is completely gone!! I never realized this. So now I give you double thanks for sharing your story. I originally wrote my 1st response years ago. And I read all new posts.
I now juice a lotta fresh fruit and fresh veggies AND I consume a lotta fresh Green Smoothies. Hmmmm. . .
I just found an indention 10 minutes ago. I read about 20 comments and can't read anymore, making me scared. I had a child 4 years ago and had been taking Vit D and calcium until this year. The last few weeks I haven't been eating well, skipping meals. I am 41. I have been having mild headaches lately, haven't noticed any other symptoms.
Wow thank you everyone...I have been worried about the dents in my skull too! After reading everyone's comments I put my glasses on my head...where I wear them 75% of the time and lo and behold !!! the nose pieces fit exactly into the dents in my head. Thank you for bringing that possibility to my attention. Saved me from wasting my time at the Dr.'s and from having expensive and dangerous testing done.
Hi Rantan, thank you so much for sharing your experience and advice. May I ask what natural therapies you tried? I'm guessing you meant things such as herbal tinctures?
TO EVERYONE & ANYONE,
I've been following this thread for awhile, today I joined medhelp so I could add my experience with the same exact thing...
I found my indent over a year ago. I had a CT scan, they did find a small "irregularity" in my skull exactly where my indent is. Oh and by the way, I don't just have an indent, to the right of it, my skull or whatever is happening there is higher like miniature speed hump.
If I press on it, even lightly, it doesn't cause pain but it does start sensations that do not feel right.
I saw a neurologist, he gave me the all clear thank goodness.
I asked, so what about the finding with my skull? At first he pretended to know what I was talking about so I sat there for a moment as he pretended to find the report he claimed to have read.
Eventually... I passed him my copy of the report. As he read it, I could tell that was his first time reading it, aye... When he got to the finding in my skull he let out a loud "OHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!"
He only read the CT scan, not the written report by the radiologist. Thankfully, he admitted that the skull is right out of his expertise so he couldn't help me there.
He did a full 360 in his attitude when he realized I have anxiety. My neurologist wasn't professional or compassionate. I almost walked out when he made the nasty switch, thankfully I didn't as that was before we cleared the fact that he hadn't gone over the report. I would of assumed he read that and it was all ok.
Please prepare yourself for this kind of treatment, whether or not you have anxiety. We're investigating an indent in our skull. Whether it's bone or something else, lets face it, it does sound weird and the common response will be, that you've lost your marbles. Or, who knows the outline of their skull, how are you so sure it's changed and all sorts of other rather ignorant things. Be strong guys and know you've got my full sympathy and understanding.
The second I stumbled across my indent, I jump out of my seat due to sheer shock. I went over it two more times, hoping it wasn't so. Then I asked my husband to feel the indent and his eyes went huge, it isn't just a slight change in my skull, it is a bold change. I understand it could be various things, maybe even something new that no one has begun any research in. But upon discovering it whoa! What a shock.
But oh is it rough to see professionals or even loved ones not take you seriously. So over a year on, I'm still trying to find my way. As doctors aren't listening to me so I have to keep changing doctors. Finally one is listening to me even though she doesn't know what's happening, it's a start.
I've had 2 different loads of blood tests done, all good. In fact, I'm quite healthy. So it's even more confusing. I don't have anxiety constantly, I go through phases of it.
So please don't think a neurologist is all you need. Even if they find something, your health in some way was failing, and that's the core root we need to discover, understand and heal.
I tried letting it go. Nice dream... Since discovering my indent, the following has also sprung up...
1. My long and short term memory are bad and on occasion they get worse, a few times I've experienced complete blanks, those moments are scary. Thankfully they're rare.
2. My ears still randomly hurt and make the loudest piercing sounds. Yet there's never an infection.
3. My orthostatic hypotension is constant, although my intense vertigo did go away.
4. My hands tremble sometimes. Occasionally my forefinger trembles on it's own.
5. My postures can feel awkward, sort of robotic I guess, don't know if I also look awkward. If I do, no one is mentioning anything. I wish they would... If it is so.
6. Sometimes I can't find the words I want to say or type. I say the wrong word but it's sort of similar to what I did mean to say so you still understand me even though it's incorrect. Sometimes I say something that is a mixture of actual words or worse, what I say is total nonsense.
7. I can be slow in my thinking, this is the worst part. I'm not my normal sharp self. Something I can't quite explain, dropped. Again, it's really hard to explain. What I can say is I definitely don't feel like myself. I keep waiting to snap out of it, it's not happening.
8. My ability to explain things can be terrible. Sometimes for a simple question. I have to fight just to access some part of the answer. So strange and frustrating.
9. I'm considering this also might be related to my teeth, I did have my first root canal 2 years ago and that's my earliest memory of my head throbbing as if a heart were in there.
As you can imagine, I have been keeping a much healthier lifestyle, not that I was terrible before. It helped with the headaches but I still feel many other things such as...
- Strange, random head pains (they're not headaches) that happen in various spots. The temples, few places at the back near the top, on the sides, usually one spot gets hit at a time then there be a gap and it will hit one of the other regular spots. I think... Also I feel fluid or something move around slowly but surely.
- My eyesight started getting blurry I swear it was sudden, so now I have glasses. That I need to wear often, without them I feel blind even though my lens prescription is the second lowest number. What on Earth is going on.
- The skin on my face went from great to poor.
- Often I feel a strange pull sensation on the back of my head, not where my indent is.
- If I move my hair a certain way, there's another pain that is not a headache nor like the pain I described earlier. It's in a league of it's own.
Ok... That's about it for now.
Oh I saw a chiropractor he did his magical work on me and did cause my orthostatic hypotension to totally disappear for a few days, something I thought I'd never be free of even for a second. So there's a huge pressure relief guys, so maybe check out a chiropractor if the pressure builds too high whilst you sort this out. He thinks I've hurt a ligament around my head. From everything I've heard this feels the closet to what could be apart of what is going on. Only going by my instinct that is.
i am on this site because i was seeing if anyone else has a dent that suddenly seemed to show up on their head. mine seems to be itchy. not noticible visually but i can feel the dent. i have not hit my head. i thought it may be because i park my reading glasses on the top of my head all the time, but really to not think that could be the case. tell me what you have discovered about dents people find in their heads. thanks.
I also discovered an indentation on my crown, roughly 20mm in dia, over a year ago. At the time, I figured it was just my natural shape and that I must have missed it during my teens. Nope.
The theory that it is caused due to a vitamin D deficiency seems to be accurate in my case. I spent about 45 mins in the sun over the weekend, which is, of course, a great source of vitamin D. My hair is shaven and I definitely felt sunburnt the following day. The indentation had also vanished completely!
I'm 43 years old, pretty healthy, non-smoker, mother of two boys. I started having headaches about 5 months ago. Sometimes they feel like sinus headaches, sometimes like light stabbing around my skull. Other symptoms include pressure/pain/sounds in my ears and behind them and more recently, a few new dents in my skull. I have a few around the crown and two small ones around the hairline. They are tender to the touch. No pain med helps. I've had a brain MRI, CT-scan of the sinuses and a neck MRI done. I have slight bulging disks (c4 and c5) on my neck, but everything else is normal. I've seen many doctors and they tend to ignore the skull dent comment. My bloodwork is normal. Vitamin D wasn't checked this last time, but was a little low last time, a couple of years ago. I have taken over the counter supplements before. I don't drink a ton of water, but I really never have. I do drink a bit too much diet soda, probably two cans a day. I'm trying to cut back. Oh, my right arm seems a bit weak, but that may be due to the bulging neck disk. I do hope all this goes away soon! I'm trying magnesium supplements and more water next. Will keep everyone posted.
I have many of the symptoms you have. I found a dent on top of my head almost midline last year which is now deeper, also have a small one now on other side. Presently waiting on dr feedback. I have had M.E for 19yrs which was triggered by 2 different viruses at that time. Vitamin D was low few years back, will most probably have bloods redone again soon. Most symptoms were pre-dent find
That was like reading a description of my own symptoms from start to finish! Even the eyesight and inability to think straight, more than the usual befuddled state I get in because of the chaos around m. So reassuring Im not alone and really hope we all find solutions to this strange phenomena ! I also get throbbing behind the ears, even when not wearing my glasses, and a shooting pain along my jaw. Very disconcertingly!
I've recently started having the same issues. I believe it comes from lack of sleep and or looking at a screen for long periods of time.I just started going to bed late and doing online schooling for hours at a time. Also drinking less water.hope this helps.... Good luck.
I have an indent in the middle top of my head. I have had Epilepsy all my life, I was in hospital for the first 3 month of my life. I'm nearly 41 over weight, have a fatty liver & some days I could stay in bed all day. Does anyone else feel like this
Hi..has anyone heard of the antibiotic doxycycline burning the nerve endings in your nose? 2 yrs ago I took it and now I can't smell or taste normal.I can't stand anything with a scent..can't stand fried foods.I've lost 65 lbs and losing bcause I can't eat.I can't find an attorney or anyone to help me.I've had ctscans..mris..seen all kinds of drs..idk what else to do.
I'm a twenty five years old and I've noticed I have a dent in the top of my head for several or so years. I was never sure how I got it but I've never had any tenderness there or illness causing me to investigate it further. Well it's always best to seek answers when it comes to your head but still. Recently Ive been getting headaches, especially when laying down. The headaches has been constant and goes the front of my head. Any suggestions other than my soon appointment to a DR???
Has anyone ever heard of skull readings? Well I also have a huge dent in the back of my skull top I've had it since I was young , guessing it has some to do with our nationalities , age , and possibly our personalities , just can't find any videos or knowledge on skull readings , found many on hand readings ...
Maybe an app store will have a book on skull reading be interesting to read doctors wont tell you much about the dents cause they are paid to prescribe you pills not give answers
I'm Type 1 diabetic, anemic, Vit D deficient, neuropathy, allergies, and see rheumatologist for possible lupus (another autoimmune issue). Take 50,000 units Vit D every other week. Anemia under control. Found indention (approx 2 in. long x 0.25 in. deep) two months ago. Haven't asked doctor about it yet. Found this website because I am concerned and don't even know how to approach this with my doctor. It was definitely not there before. Top, right, and toward forehead but still in hair. We've all presumably scratched our heads in our lifetime and would have noticed these indentations before now. Thanks for info.
I am 58 yrs. old and I noticed a 2 inch indentation near the front of my head about three weeks ago. I know it wasn't there before because when I wash my hair I know how my scalp feels. I never felt any pain there either like some people. It's like "was I abducted by aliens and had some kind of surgery done?" This is weird. To make it even weirder I was talking with my sister and we were talking about hair and she told she noticed she had an indentation about 2 to 3 inches long toward the back of her head. She said she noticed it some months ago.i told her I had one too that I just found recently.
I searched this out and read many posts over the past few days. I am in my mid 40's and I am currently taking Lisinopril & Hydrochlorothiazide for blood pressure. I am in the process of moving to another state and I am handling this alone so I am definitely stressed.I had take a shower the morning of 3 days ago and my head was fine and just 7 hours after my shower the dent is there. It runs to the right of my middle part near the front of my head. I had movers come to load up my truck with my belongings but I am not one to sit b and do nothing so I pitched in. After 6 hours of constant workout in the 85 degree heat with hardly anything to drink I started to feel a little faint. I stood at the truck talking with the movers and as I went to push sweat off my brow I noticed the dent. It really freaked me out. I decided that this must be from dehydration so I downed a bunch of water. The dent got a bit shorter but was still there the next day. So I decided to not take my hydrochlorothaizide as it is a water pill. I drank plenty of fluids including some V-8 for vitamins. I woke up this morning and the dent is almost gone. I can barely feel where it was. I plan to not take my water pill again today and continue to replenish my fluids. I am hoping it will be back to 100% tomorrow. My thought is...how many others may have been dehydrated and this is the cause for this? I'm not sure for all cases but my Calcium & Vitamin D were just check two weeks ago and I was fine. The only thing different in my life was the dehydration from over doing it on a hot day.
Did you have skull indents before lime d. I had a bite on the back of my neck that took along time to heal , no ring around it 2 months ago .about when my feet and neck were hurting worse than usual ,I haven't had any flu like sickness or fever. I did start on a medication pravastatan for cholesterol .dent started on the left side and within the last few days it's on the right ..this is just weird.
Hello, I'm 17 and i have the dent on the top back of my head. It feels like a "soft spot" and is tender and hurts when I touch it in the middle. I found that it bothers me even more if I drink alcohol. I know that some people think their is no explanation for this but I believe that things just don't happen with out even a little reason. ~ I have noticed that for many people with this dent, it seems to be corasponding with weight loss. Maybe it was always their just more hidden by fat fulling in the dent. Still unsure why their would be pain but maybe a natural pressure point. Remaber we are human and natural and use a lot of things that are not normal for are body's. ~ I hope this helps some. im just looking for an explanation and can only offer my hipothasis
Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I too have 2 long dents that started out with just one really thin line which broadened within like 2 weeks & now I have 2 lines with a crown between them that are about the with of my little finger. I am 55 years old & they just started forming around March 2015. So I've been kind of concerned about them because they have grown wider & went from 1 to 2. I also don't drink a lot of milk & I put my glasses & sunglasses on top of my head. I've been trying to find out anything about this, so thank you to everyone who has posted. I'm gonna try drinking more milk & keeping my glasses off my head. I pray everyone who has this is completely healed. Thank you again everyone. G_D Bless you with healing & health.
I last posted October last year! I still have not found an answer. I feel I was not taken seriously, once. Soon I'm going to the dentist to cover this area as well. It isn't nothing! This is the weirdest experience of my life. Where I feel clear changes in my skull and health and doctors aren't listening to me. So bizarre. I feel the band of tight pain around my head now that's what reminded to check out the new replies here. Good luck everyone, I wish you great health, answers and peace. Be strong!
I am so happy to have happened upon this thread purely by accident. I have had these dents for several years now and originally noticed them because of deep dark reddish purple lines in my scalp and upon feeling these discolorations found the dents. They move around and can appear and disappear rather rapidly sometimes with the discoloration; more often not. Dr.s have told me that they don't exist even though I have shown them pictures of them. I had my sister take a picture of it and her response was, What is that." It was gone the next morning. I asked her to take a picture of it and she said, "There is nothing there." I told her that that was the point. I have a suggestion, perhaps we could form a group, discovery group as it were, (since now I know I am not the only one,) and we could start formulating our own research since we are the ones who know best and maybe we could start to throw all our perceived possibilities into a common pot and perhaps discover something or interest a researcher into looking into it. I know mine exist and I trust that yours exist and I am tired of the medical profession blaming the victim for what they can't explain.
ur not very nice. I have learned not to speak on something unless u have personally experienced it or u want to. 50 people might seem like a lot 2 you but if you truly paid attention, you would have seen 3 sets of symptoms. Thanks for trying to bring down a group of scared and worried people who finally found a place to express their concerns. ;) I had to sign up so I didn't get the guys name. This is for the guy talking about his brother. Heaven forbid this site caused one person to feel better or even save a life. I just found the dent, and I am grateful to have found this forum
I have just discovered my dent at crown, I have clumps of hairloss, had a terrible rash, pain in joints back headaches.
I also put mirena in this year. Check out side effects. Having it out tomorrow!
I have dents on my head that started about a few years ago. And I recently went to the doctor for asthma related issues and I was prescribed high blood pressure medication, as my blood pressure was really high. Literally my dents went away. Not sure if this is the issue as many of you say that your blood pressure was fine. Just throwing it out there. I hope you all find some answers. <3
My 16 year old has an indentation on the back of the head towards the crown. It seemed to get bigger over time and is tender to the touch. I asked her doctor who felt it but said he had never seen an issue like this turn out to be something pathological. He also said we should see the other doctor's head he works with - huge dent but that's just the way his skull is formed. We did an x-ray and it was completely normal (although did show a slight depression in the skull there) so he says it must just have been like this from when she was a baby. Possibly from sleeping on her back or something. Just wanted to post because not too many people follow up and this is a cause of anxiety for so many.
I also have large indentation in about the same place in my skull and like you I suffer from seizures (which have been getting worse) in the beginning they were saying mine were caused from something bottoming out (like my blood pressure, blood sugar, potassium, ect.) but now they have dianose me with epilepsy and migraines. This has me worried and I'm going to mention this to my nurologist when I see him, only is I've had x-rays, cat scans, mris, and 2 regs and they never said anything to me about it.
I had two large dents on the top of my head and it really freaked me out. I, like others, noticed that it was close to where I wore my glasses on the top of my head. I stopped doing that and they are going away. After having them for at least a year, in a week and a half of not wearing glasses on the top of my head, they are almost gone. I would suggest that everyone with dents should think twice about wearing their glasses on their head or headphones.
I just noticed I had this same issue tonight on my way home from work. I've never noticed it before in my 40 years. I've been suffering from severe tiredness and forgetfulness recently.. As well as making irrational decisions which isn't like me. I do wear my sunglasses on top of my head daily. They are almost part of my wardrobe. I'll give the suggestion to stop wearing them on top a try and plan to mention this to my physician. Very odd. Hopefully it's not medication related. I take thyroid meds and suboxone daily. Anyone else taking these meds?
After reading these posts I put my glasses on top of my head and the touch where the 2 dent lines are on top of my head. So I'm going to try to remember not to put them on top of my head. I have other issues, too (Tietze Syndrome, non-diabetic neuropathy, etc. ), and I hope the glasses are the issue and not some other medical condition. Let us know what you find out!
I know you wrote your post awhile ago but just wanted to pipe in and say great idea....I would be happy to set up a facebook page if anyone else is interested. We could post descriptions and what we have tried to help the situation. Because I have no medical experience I wouldn't really know where to start. Although in saying that I am studying psychology so am learning to read and interpret research reports. Ill check in again soon to see if there is any interest in this.
Woah that's crazy it's almost like I wrot that myself. Every single problem applies to me wtf! We all need to link up and find out what's the root of the problem. I think the tooth is dead giveaway that there's a problem going on inside our heads (literally lol)
Yall are describing my symptoms exactly! I do also wear my sunglasses on top of my head daily. I'm experiencing the forgetfulness, weird mood swings, etc so its hard to picture my glasses doing this but I'm willing to try anything. I'll try to check back in a week and let yall know.
WTF!!! I AM 53 YEARS OLD AND NEVER HAD THIS INDENTATION BEFORE! IT'S ON THE RIGHT SIDE CROWN OF MY HEAD, AND WAS NOT THERE YESTERDAY, JUST FOUND IT 5 MINUTES AGO! IS MY SKULL CAVING IN? I ALSO WEAR MY GLASSES ON TOP OF MY HEAD! IT'S 12:56 AM AND I'M AFRAID TO GO TO SLEEP RIGHT NOW! I NEED TO BE UP FOR WORK BY 6 AM! AFRAID I'M NOT GOING TO WAKE UP! WHAT IS GOING ON?????
I found mine months ago, actually I think they've been there for a long time but not noticed or not as bad. mine are either side on the top of my head, almost in line with my ears but up higher, the right side is much deeper and worse than the left side. Kinda feels weird if I keep touching it. Haven't seen a doctor or anything yet. It's probably 2 inches long and quite deep. Ugh :'(
Found my dent last night I wear glasses on my head too. Don't worry, I believe it is nothing after reading the comments. I spent the day having everyone feel my head and me feeling their's. I;m sure you woke up and are fine.
I have the same thing, I'm 30 and I have tiny bald circle patches (The AA kind not MPB), I also have narcolepsy and get cataplectic seizures that kicked in when I was 18, I fell off a moving truck bed when I was a kid and never got checked out, I never get head aches, but I started to this year and notice the dent got bigger. Someone said they could feel their brain fluids moving, I do too (like a chugging) The tiny bald circle patches are linked to auto immune deficiencies, I don't get sick often but my doctor always says I have a high count of white blood cells in my body when he tests me. I got a CT scan and MRI 3 years ago which came out clear, I have one scheduled tomorrow I'll keep you folks updated. It's crazy to think with all the progress made in modern medicine we might have something that is undiscovered, since so many of us share the exact same symptoms.
It's perfectly normal don't freak it! Yes it is a calcium defeciency, not tumors, sunken skull,or any other creepy illness. Some people have it some don't, but a lot of people are ashamed by this and don't talk about it. I've had mine all my life and the only thing that bothers me is the fact that it is tender which could also be a result of having a soft spot in your head such as when you were a child. Bottom line is don't worry!
I'm only 18, and I found one over an hour ago, I'm getting pains it it, almost like a headache, except it feels as though there is fluid. Painkillers aren't working. It's on my left side lined up with my ear except much higher up, I'm afraid I won't wake up in the morning
I'm 15 now and I was 14 when I realised that I had a dent at the right side of my skull/head. There used to be occasional pains but now its getting more and more frequent. Can someone suggest what to do please
I think you should see a neurologist I have a code in for head myself and I have been seeing a neurologist since I was five my four head caved in when I was five causing me to suffer seizures and now I don't have grandma seizures anymore passenger thousand 11 I fell and hit my head so hard that are not the grand mall seizures out of my head but I have light seizures now but suffer from migraines but I have what is called linear scleroderma it's very rare disease that you can't catch but what it actually is this an autoimmune disease I just found out this year so anyone who has a caved in forehead or indentation in there forehead they most likely have linear scleroderma watches and I don't mean disease and they should see a neurologist Seizure doctor they can help you and tell you if you have it or not you still live a normal life but you just have to be careful you don't hit your head where the indentation or where it's caved in it's caused by too much Cartlidge in that area that's what's caused by
