HI,
Am having a repeating (every 20-30 seconds) throbbing sensation in the scalp for the past day or so.
Its feels like a mild piercing jab in the scalp. (Feels like the scalp, does not feel like a head throb)

Could somebody share diagnosis/reasons...
Thanks

  • I have similar problem daily for the last 5 years. Very disabling. Cannot work or function because of it. Done MRI and EEG, all came back no problem detected.
