When i push a specific area of my skull (left upper side) i get this headache feeling and discomfort. This is been going on for 2 weeks now (as far as i know) and i don't know if it's dangerous or serious. It's not a bump or bruise/
I have been having headaches all my life.
I can't find anything on the internet so if any of you have any information about this, i'd love to hear about it!
Thanks for writing in.
As of now it seems to be a tension headache. Tension headaches occur due to prolonged contraction of muscles that run over the skull. Gentle massage may ease the tension in that particular area.
If you have a history of migraine then this discomfort could be because of that. Migraine sufferers do have a history of sore and tender areas on the scalp.
Other possibility can be sinusitis. Especially if you have a runny nose or a post nasal drip.
Hope this helps!
