WOW! I have this issue too! It’s been driving me crazy for two days now, and I can’t seem to explain it to anyone. Nobody understands when you tell them it feels like a shock going thru the nerves in one area of your scalp. It’s like a quick, painful and shock to the nerves that almost take my breath away each time it hits. Thank Goodness it only happens for a second or two, but it is drivng me crazy because it’s EVERY FEW SECONDS and ALL DAY LONG NOW!!!
I too have also had a strange “jumpy nerve” feeling on my arm in the past. It seems I have these painful and annoying nerve issues a couple times a year.

***Were you ever able to find out what caused your shocking nerve pain in your scalp? Please let me know!
Thanks so much for validating what I’m going thru!

Did you find anything out? I’m suffering from the same thing. I described it to my husband as a repeated wasp sting in the same place on my scalp. He sees nothing…except for me freeze in place and wince in pain.

Sorry for my ignorance here. (I am a Trigeminal Neurolgia survivor in the face. I had a massive Ritzotomy in the brain) But are you sure it is TN? What you all have is surely real. I was under the suggestion TN was only with the 3 branches in your face. The nerve is hitting against a blood vessel ..

Omg this is happening to me today and yesterday!!! I have never had this before, but it has been all day and I can’t even function correctly. It’s sudden bolts of shock on my right side and I make this face bc it hurts but like you said, thank goodness it’s only seconds at a time. I really don’t know what to do or what it’s from.
