    headaches and sore scalp
    sky68ou1 posted:
    i have frequent migraines nearly daily, and ive also been recently diagnosed as having strokes. today ive had a headache and my scalp is now very sore and sensitive to the touch on top of my head. what caused this soreness? is it related to the migraines or could it be from a stroke or the bulging disc in my neck? this is not the first time ive had this happen.

    Hi sky, have you seen a uerologist at all? With your medical conditions I would because that can get complicated. Are you taking any medications right now? have you been to a pain spec or chiro? They could answer your questions about the bulging disk. Are you taking anything for the headaches? It sort of sounds like it mght be neck related,but only a dr can help you find out the cause. Hope this helps.
