Hi there is no topic here which I can fit into.

SO I am posting again this because I dont understand it.


I bumped my eyebrow on a door-edge very slightly and had a little bruising(not visible) which I expected to go away in a few days.

But now that the bruising has gone I have a strange symptom that when I touch the point that was bruised with my finger, a corresponding point directly above in my hairline feels it too.

The best explanation is to take a group of hairs along your hairline front directly above a point on your eyebrow and then tug them such that you feel the tug where they connect on your sculp.
Now imagine that you get that feeling alone when you simply press your eyebrow.

What has happened?

Sounds like a nerve was irritated...
Give it time, it should heal.

Yup, it's a nerve thing. I had surgery on my right eyebrow 10 years ago. During the healing process not only did it itch like the dickens...but when I touched the scar or scratched it, I felt it at my hairline on my forehead. Just like you said...like tugging on the hairs. It can last a while, but it should go away. Every once in a while I still get that sensation when I scratch my eyebrow. But for the most part it is gone.
