Hi jennie48 -
I could imagine that the scalp hurting comes from you hitting your head; there is not much between skin and bone on the scalp that could absorb the impact from hitting. There is kind of skin covering the bones (sorry my dictonary does not know the right word for this in English!) and on places like the scalp or shinbone where the bone lies closely under the skin, hitting affects this "bone - skin" and that often hurts for LONG.
Does the other pain get somewhat better during the day? There are homeopathic remedies which may help you - and they are safe at least. You could try Rhus toxicodendron and another one which is similar and mentioned by Razzle in pcpc`s thread "shoulder pain" is Ruta Graveolens - may be this one could even be better for the scalp pain too; boths are good joint pain remedy. I took the Rhus tox. for tendonitis but it helped with my other pain surprisingly good also.
Hope you get better soon! greetings, dorit
