for several weeks i have been having shooting pains on top my scalp with soreness when the
shooting is not going on. I was having tightness also across the back of my head. I have a
sore shoulder tendon on the side that has the most pain. Regular doctor put me on skelaxin
and darvocets which are not doing anything for me. Could I possible have nerve damage. Do I
need to see a Neurologist. I went to the emergency room several days ago and had a ct scan
done and it didn't show anything.
A CT scan would not show anything in such cases. The headache you have described does not look like a migraine.
There is a chance of a nerve involvement. Have you noticed if the area of the scalp is sensitive to touch ? Does the pain increase on combing, etc ? You have to see a neurologist for this and consider the possibility of trigeminal neuralgia.
