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

Hi @hopeful33250 Now that you mention it I have noticed that my balance is bad. I have always been a clumsy person and my balance was always off but I’ve noticed in the last year or two it seems to be worse.

Hi @colleenyoung No I haven’t me mentioned it to my doctor, I really must do it. Thank you for the directions on how to navigate the discussions, I’ve only joined and it’s very confusing.. I’ll go check out the other members comments now.

Mar 8, 2017 · "Electric Shock" type pain in my scalp! in Chronic Pain

Hi I was wondering if anyone else has the same problem as me. I get shooting pain like an electric shock it lasts for only a second or two then stops but it happens every two or three minutes. I usually know when it’s going to start as I get a tingling on my skin beforehand sort of like the tiny hairs on my face are charging then the pain starts. I can have it for up to a fee days then it stops and I may not have it again for a few months. I have heard of Trigeminal Neuralgia and what I get sounds exactly like that but the difference with mine is it’s not only on my face I get it on my scalp too and when I get really bad episodes it can affect my neck, throat, inside my nose,eyes and gums too. It’s so painful it makes me wince and shout out it’s very embarrassing. I’ve had a doctor tell me it’s from nerve damage because I was never vaccinated as a child and I’ve had chickenpox four times three times as an adult. Could this be true? Has anyone else got something similar?
