This may be kind of long because I want to explain everthing. I got a tattoo on the back of my neck about 4 months ago. Everything went fine and the healing was normal but ever since I have had a burning sensation in different parts of my neck, back, and head. It feels like there is a little ball of fire about the size of a quarter that keeps moving around between my neck, upper back, and the back of my head. It never hurts everwhere at once. It feels like it is moving around. It will stay in one spot for a few hours and then move to another. I have been to 2 different doctors for this and the first one told me I needed to get a good massage and the second one told me to use cold packs on my neck. I really an worried that there is something wrong with me. I am super scared and I don't know what to do. I put an ice pack on it and it does give me relieve for about and hour and then it is back again. The area where the sensation is at feels a little sensitive to touch when it is burning but not very much. I can touch it and lay on it and it doesn't hurt it just feels more sensitive. Could this be caused from the tattoo or is this something else. I am open to any and all suggestions so that when I go back to the doctor I can request things for them to check. Please help.
