hello all.. i have been having headaches, migraines,tension headacehes since 3 or 4 years old im 23 now. well about 7 months ago i started having these burning sentsations or electrical shocking feeling in the top of my head, its only in one spot and some times the burning sentsation will go a lil more down in my head.when i do touch my head where i get the shocking feeling it kind of hurts,  it feels like a bruse or numbness and its only in that spot. its not headaches it happents for a few seconds to mints to some times hours.I am nervous of having a brain tumor cause thats what this sounds like, to me.My doctor pissed me off  saying this could be from stress or pinced nerve or infection or it could be anything mad im so angry with him , he asked me if it hurted rite now when i was in his office and i said no and he was like well come back when the pain hurts nono how dare he? Now nobody beleives me anymore bc i complaine about it all the time, and they think i am makeing it up sad OHH it happents alot when i have my period and after my period, usually rite after my period mostly.I dont take any meds but advil ,i also have other symtopms:dizzines, ear pain,fozzy head<------ all of these symtpoms sound like a brain tumor to me confused   im sooo scared.i dont have insurance or dont have the money to do an mri.

Hi Eva22, Welcome to Healing Well. Listen, I believe you!!! Unfortunately some Doctors don't cope well when they cannot see the pain or the result of the pain. Doctors have said something similar to me in the past - not nice!!

Do you keep a diary of when you get these burning/shocking pains? If you don't it may be a good idea to do so as this will help the Doctor to see how you are suffering - they didn't take me as seriously as they needed to until I produced a Headache Diary. Make sure you note how long each episode lasts, date and time of day and how or if you treated it i.e. took an advil plus dosage and time taken. Plus any other symptoms that come along with it.

Try not to be scared about it being a tumour the anxiety about that will make things worse, besides it probably is not a tumour. Is the Doctor you saw a Neurologist? Migraine, as I am sure you know, can often be connected with periods, a lot of women get migraines or other headaches around that time of the month. Please keep in touch and let us know how you get on. Take care Ann.

Hi Eva - your headaches sound a lot like mine! I had tension type headaches, but only on one side because mine were caused from clenching my teeth at night from stress and I have an uneven bite. If you press on the area where the pain seems to be and it produces more pain, you can be pretty sure that its a tension headache with pericranial muscle strain. I always had soreness on my scalp above and behind my ear, and thats where the headaches always came from. I also got the burning sensation, still do sometimes when I have a bad one, right in the area where the pain is coming from.

By the way, I fixed my headaches by going on an anti-anxiety med and having my dentist make me a bite splint to wear at night so that when I clenched it would be on an even planed surface. Now I'm basically headache free unless I am under a ton of stress.

I hope I helped, and I'm sorry your doctor doesn't listen to you - is there a way you can get a referral to a neurologist? They will take your pain much more seriously and give you an MRI with your symptomology - then you can be assured that its not a brain tumor.

Peace, Eve22, I know exactly what you are talking about because I am experiencing the same pains and worries as youshakehead . You said that, you feel a burning sensations on the top of your head, I feel the same thing when I squeeze my head trying to get some relief Al though the burning sensation does not move down in my head but after squeezing my head it feels like a bruise or like its been numb. I also get pains in my ears sometimes, I thought that these head pains was coming from an old head injury but I'm not sure and I even thought that it could be hair loose issues so truly I don't know what is causing it but I noticed that when I message my head it starts to feel better and I get relief. I think it has something to do with the blood in our heads not circulating cuz every time I do that off and on for a few hours my head feels better, also I get this medicated oil to enhance the blood circulation and the pain usually goes away or I just forget about it. I think you should message your scalp everyday and maybe the pain will stop happening, I'm not sure yet because I always forget to message my head everyday but when I do that for just a few days in the row the pain is gone but when I stop and forget about doing it sometimes months later the pain returns so truly I think the pain is caused by the lack of blood circulating in our heads. I just was feeling the pain really bad but its just like when your muscles are tight or hurt while messaging the spot it hurts really bad but when you stop you feel relief the same goes for the scalp. smurf
Just try it and tell me what happened. I really hope it helps you out.

I had the similar symptoms! But unlike you I suffered for the last 7 months only. God helped me and He will help you too.


What I did are as follows:

1) I had two root canalled teeth and I got rid of them because they contain toxic bacteria which lives in your dead tooth and causes neurotoxicity.

2) I had my silver amalgam feelings as they contain 50% of mercury which is an extreme neurotoxin! But go to a dentist who follow IAOMT standard for removing amalgams.

3) I avoid foods with MSG (monosodium glutamate)! 90% of the packaged foods in super market contain MSG


I did these after huge internet studies and failing three four specialist doctors and lot of tests e.g. CT scan, nerve conduction test, blood tests etc. I suggest you go to Utube and search for "root canal danger" google video for "poision in your mouth" and Utube for "MSG danger" and you'll  get the idea!!


I am quite normal now but within last 3 months I had been hospitalized 3 times. God bless you.

I had four (4) teeth that were bad taken out of my mouth. My inflammation level went from 91 to 60 in two months. 60 is still not normal but as least it's better than 91.

HARA - Now if my neck pain and headache pain would go away that would be nice.eyes
