For the past few days I have had non-stop tenderness on my scalp. Out of curiosity I looked up the scalp muscles and believe the the tender area is my galea. The pain is on my right side and close to the top center of my head and more to the back than the front. It is so tender to the touch. I have had sharp pains there periodically before and thought nothing much of it. A few times I have had migraines generating pain from this area. I had been rubbing my head in this spot and swore I felt a hole or dent, some kind of crater maybe. I had my boyfriend confirm I am not crazy and he feels it too. Does anyone think this sounds familiar to them? Or have any suggestions? The pain in my head is killing me and pressing the spot almost releives pressure, but what if I am making a dent in my skull??
