I don't know what is going on with my head! It started after I fell forward and hit my head on the corner of a cabinet at work. That is 8 years ago. My symptoms are: vice like grip. itchy scalp. outside of my ears will get shooting pains, I feel like I would like my scalp removed, very tight neck muscles. I have had Brain MRI, Cervical MRI, 60 physical therapy appointments, my neurologist went through the whole list of medications for nerve pain, etc ( it took 1 year) and none of them worked), shots directly in my head, botox injections in my forehead, went to Headache Clinic in Chicago for a week-they drugged me so badly I slept day and night, 2 pain clinics that gave me a multitude of shots. After all this they have termed it headache, tension headache, occipital neuralgia. Something is not right in this head 7 days a week - 24 hours a day. The only thing that helps slightly is tramadol (that I have to beg for) and 2 Tylenol. Also laying down on a pillow seems to take some pain away....like maybe my head is too heavy and something is sitting on a nerve??? I would love to go to a Veterans Hospital because they most likely have dealt with something like this with our soldiers.
