I haven't had scalp pain in ages but I got up this morning and when I got in the shower as soon as the hot water hit my head the old painful scalp pain was back.  Does anyone else get this?  I've never been able to find any relief for this.  It is even more sore this evening.....Any suggestions?

Oh, no, that doesn't sound pleasant at all. I'm sorry about that. :( I don't experience that, but I did switch to tub baths and separately washing my hair in the sink - instead of showers. The pressure of the shower was making me turn bright red, hot and blotchy - even though the water wasn't hot. It was like a type of eczema for me. I wonder if that would alleviate the pain for you?

Sorry Libby Ive never had anything like that. i do have a very sensitive head cant handle getting hit on top of the head becuase it hurts worse than anywhere else. I will be praying that this doesnt last long.

I get scalp pain, it drives me nuts, but I haven't found anything that helps. Good luck.

Libby - while I was researching my own symptoms today, I ran across and article that said magnesium deficiency can result in scalp pain!!

Have your doc check your levels. Even if the test comes back okay, ask if it is safe to take magnesium, maybe that will solve it.

Hi Libby!

I get it from time to time and it comes as mysteriously as it goes. Sometimes I think my pain meds help or adding some Tylenol. As strange as it sounds... I get headaches from my pain medicine so doc said to take tylenol for the headaches/pain. Most often it actually works. This was more for headaches but it might not hurt to try.

Good luck!
