I have sore hard lumps around the crown and back of my head. They eventually scab over and sometimes go away while others appear. What causes this?

#14, crowned. Root canaled, still sore. What's next? Ear canal sore, (family dr said e canal normal). Should I wait till infected again, v sore etc?

Check the bite: If the root canal was properly done, and healed, then infection should not be present. If your new crown hits the lower teeth before your other teeth hit, or bumps into your lower teeth when you grind side to side; it could cause your symptoms. When you close and squeeze without food, is your tooth tender? If so a bite adjustment will help. ...Read more

Can a pinch nerve in the neck or crown of skull cause dizziness? Strained neck heard a pop doesn't hurt but very annoying. Lower back of head tender.

Can a pinch nerve in the neck or crown of skull cause dizziness? Strained neck heard a pop doesn't hurt but very annoying. Lower back of head tender.

Pinched Nerve: A pinched nerve in the neck can cause temporary and limited episodes of dizziness but it shouldn't necessarily persist as long periods of dizziness. There might be something else going on if that is the case, including a diskmpronlem with nerve or vascualr compromise. If the dizziness doesn't clear expeditiously, I would make an appointment to see a neurologist and have it thoroughly checked out. ...Read more

Muslce: This is likely a muscle tension headache. We have muscles that cross all over our skull and for a lot of people, these can become tense and sore, causing pain that is palpable and even headaches for some. I might suggest trying some ibuprofen 600-800mg every 6hours as needed or naproxen 500mg every 12 hours as needed which may help with any inflammation and pain. A heating pad may also help. ...Read more

No nausea: If you have no nausea, vomiting, loss of consciousness, or visual changes, the chances of having a brain injury is small.
