this is the second occurrence, the first time it happened was 8 months ago. It went away after 1-2 weeks.
This time it's in the 6th day, was most severe on the 3rd or 4th day.
headache ONLY when head is shaken front and back(like nodding in quick motion), but not when head is moved laterally left or right. It also does not hurt when i turn head left or right, like rotating.
Pain feels like it originates from the top of scalp to the left side.
Scalp itself is not tender to touch or palpation. No swelling is present.
Pain scale can be 5-6/10 when shaken. At rest motion it's like a dull ache at that one spot, maybe 2/10.
I went to the MD when it happened first 8 months ago. The doctor thought it was a sinus issue. He prescribed ibuprofen 800mg which I never even filled out. I took OTC ibuprofen up to 600mg at once, and it does not alleviate the pain. He ordered some sinus series radiographs but found nothing. This resolved by itself in a week or two.
This time around, I went to the MD again 2 days ago, a different doctor examined me. No neurological dysfunction that he can conclude. He had suggested it's a connective tissue problem that is not inside the skull. He suggested ice pack on to my head and take OTC ibuprofen. I took another 600mg ibuprofen, did nothing. Ice pack on my head just made me cold.
