I feel silly asking this question. But I figure here would be the best place! The past couple of weeks I have had a terrible pain in my upper neck. At the base of my skull and my spine starting. The only way the pain is relieved is when myself(or my husband) pinch that area VERY HARD,over and over again until it subsides. I get migraines and tension headaches all the just regular head pain. This is fairly new and it seems weird. It also hurts BAD! My old neurologist says that I had the "start" of a lesion at the start of my I am wondering if a lesion can be felt? Could a lesion be causing this pain,in this area?

Hey Nichole far as i've ever heard a lesion can't be felt. The results of it certainly can be, but not the actual lesion as far as i know. Maybe a tender spot from an oncoming migraine??? That is very odd. Have u called the doc to report?? Would prob be a good idea to let him know and investigate for u. Take care and let us know how this goes for u.

Some folks will contradict me I'm sure...but no, lesions cannot be felt. Whatever is going on with your neck...if it were me, I'd be on the phone to the doctor, for sure!
