You were my first hit and I couldn’t believe your description EXACTLY fit the description of my symptoms; shocking pain that makes me scream, grunt, flinch and swear. I thought the worst (embolism) that an artery had swollen an was about to burst in my scalp. In the last 2 days, the pain moved from the left side of my scalp above the ear to the right side of my head slightly above and behind my ear.
Maybe related,For the last 6 days, I’ve been treating a nasty infection in my prostate- yuch- related?- don’t know. I do know that some of my lymph nodes got active.( Using “doxycycline” to knock it out). Maybe the antibiotic is related too?
This pain, what ever its source, causes stress and shortness of breath. I may be imagining this, but I perceive it trying to override my pacemaker!.
