Touch top of head tender and get dizzy from concussion a month ago not knocked out how long to heal and skull has bump on it, I've been fine?

Variable: With your symptoms I'd say the range for everything to clear would be on the order of several weeks to several months. Head blows which then, cause significant effects of headaches, dizziness, difficulty concentrating, "goose eggs" on the scalp etc. Usually heal by then. Sometimes they can take longer but the good news is things WILL heal given time AND no further similar insults while healing. ...Read more

When I was taking a shower I had a lot of pressure in my head and then noticed that the top was very tender to touch. Still very tender this morning.

While head pressure: Can be a very alarming symptom, it is often not something life threatening. It may be a type of tension headache, or even migraine, or even the result of stress. Very high blood pressure can cause this symptom which would be unusual in a woman your age. Remote possibility is brain tumor or abscess. Tenderness suggests migraine to me. If it persists a few more hours, contact your doctor. Stay well! ...Read more

Is it okay to get a headache on the top of ur head and in the back of your head. It doesn't hurt that bad but sometimes its tender to touch?

Is it okay to get a headache on the top of ur head and in the back of your head. It doesn't hurt that bad but sometimes its tender to touch?

Okay?: I'm not sure what you mean by "okay" unless by "okay" you mean "not dangerous." Scalp tenderness is a common symptom of migraine headaches. Even though they're not dangerous, migraines can really throw a monkey-wrench into your life. Ordinary OTC pain meds are often ineffective against them. Check out the website of the American Headache Society and/or see your doctor. ...Read more

I been having really bad headaches for a while and headache is really bad wen I wake up. Also the top of my head is sore when touched, ???!

There may be a treatable reason or a trigger such as menstrual periods, thyroid problems, & other things. I recommend you see either your primary doctor or headache specialist who can help determine how to handle these. ...Read more
