for the past couple of months it felt as though someone has been pulling my hair. just in the back of my skull for only small periods of time like 10 - 15 mins every couple hrs or so... however now... i feel it all day long and all night. it prevents me from a good nights sleep. i have tried motrin, tylenol, aleve and now am trying my first bottle of excedrin. the only problem is I do not have a headache it is the sensation of either a raw skin or hair pulling. Ice helps for just an instant but nothing has relieved the pain. and it has traveled to the tope of my skull now! i don't know what im gonna do if it reaches all over my scalp. Has anyone had this before?? they say it could be stress. but im only working my normal job and it seems to be more apparantly painful when i am not at work. pls. anything u can give me to go to my doc with would help.
