Strange topic, but I want to know if anyone has dealt with this. If facing me, it's on the left side of my head. It runs from the corner of my forehead, a little bit further back. If you ran your fingers down it, you would end up at my side burns. (That's the best description I can give) It's not very deep, but definitely noticeable. (It's vertical) north to south...
I asked my neurologist about it, and he blew it off. Said something about the forming of my skull as I was a baby. I told him that I've been shaving my head for almost half of my life, and have NEVER noticed this before. It's brand new! Again, he blew it off! I've been seeing him for almost three years for daily headaches. (Have a thread on that topic here, as well)

Anyway, I googled this topic many times. But, unfortunately, nobody has answers. I had a MRI about a year ago (with contrast) and they didn't see anything abnormal. (For the headaches)

I would like to maybe have a CT or something. This is pretty ridiculous. Tell me someone here has heard of this. And no, I haven't had any trauma to my skull. It just randomly appeared one day. (about 4 moths ago)

It doesn't hurt to touch. Just a small line down the front, top (side) of my forehead.

ANY suggestions/advice would be greatly appreciated!

Stephen,

(EDIT: cornal suture area)

Did some research. I think it has something to do with my "cornal suture". (A connecting part of the skull) Connects during childhood. I'm not 100% sure it's that, but I googled for ages, and that's all I could find. Unfortunately, all of the info was on babies. Couldn't find anything on adults, with the exception of tons of people looking for answers. Sigh... Didn't originally hurt to touch, but after a little more touching, it seems like I may be onto something. (Or I'm reaching for answers) I believe there MIGHT be a correlation between that and my headaches. Who knows....

Again, any advice would be greatly appreciated. Even just simple words of encouragement (:

Stephen,

Thanks!
