Nov 12, 2017 · "Electric Shock" type pain in my scalp! in Chronic Pain

I have suffered from exactly the same thing for about 50 some years. Having a fever will always trigger an attack but most come for no reason and I am miserable for a couple of days. I can’t even comb my head on the side the attack is on. I have never seen a doctor for it and really have never found anything that makes it better, just have to wait until the attack is over. I just can’ afford to see doctors and have a bunch of tests and still no real answer. The good news is it hasn’t killed me. I often said though if the pain was constant it would or I would at least wish I was dead.

I am going to pay more attention to see if it occurs during periods where I might have gotten wind in my ears, has your ever accompanied a fever?

Apr 19, 2017 · "Electric Shock" type pain in my scalp! in Chronic Pain

I am just getting over some crud and it seems anytime I get a fever over 100 I can expect this head pain to occur, either that day or soon. So it has to have something to do with inflamation or viral. Little devils shooting lightening bolts at my head. I have had these so many years I don’t expect anyone is going to be able to help up, if they even believe or listen to us, but strangely it feels better knowing I am not the only one who has these. For those just starting with these pains, I am 62 and they haven’t killed me yet and I have had them off and on for as long as I can remember, hang in there,

Hi, I am 62 years old and have had headaches like this since as long as I can remember. I alway called them my cattle prod head pain. Out of no where I would get a jolt of pain in my head. When I have an attack it will last any where from a dozen and then gone to days of recurrent zaps on the side of my head maybe dozens of times a minute. My head will be so sensitive I can’t comb my hair over the spot for fear of triggering another jolt and because of residual pain. With bad attacks I get nauseated after a couple of hours but it is probably just the stress and pain. This can be on either side of my head but I have never had bilateral headaches like this. It actually sounds like a zap in my ears also.
I have said if these were a constant head pain you would not be able to stand the pain. It is that intense, but that quick. No doctor has ever been able to tell me what these are and I sometimes feel they don’t believe but it is real and horrible and I thank God comes and goes.
This week I am experiencing several of the attacks. I recently had a steroid shot in my hip so don’t know if that triggered it. I have never found anything that helps either. I am somewhat relieved, but sorry for you all that others know exactly what I am talking about and have the same thing.
