Scalp soreness

There is no disease that causes what you describe. If it is bothering you, then you need some medical diagnosis. Keep in mind that some things elude diagnosis or don't fit a particular pattern.

Can tension headache cause sore spots on scalp?

Not really

Head-scalp
It depends on what you are describing as a tension headache, and the characteristics of the pain and location. If the pain is over the area of the "sore spots", you may have a herpetic outbreak in your head that is causing pain. i.e. shingles. If pain is generalized, it's probably coincidental.

my scalp is tender to the touch in some spots on the left side of my head. why could this be?

IT DEPENDS

Scalp that hurts could be due to an inflammatory process of the scalp due to diet, stress, hormonal imbalance, bacterial or fungal infection. Do you have redness of the scalp? pimples? oily scalp? flaking? crusting? bleeding? There is something called temporal arteritis which is a diagnosis that we would not want to miss. Please see your physician for a physical exam and history.

It sounds like you may be dealing with an infectious process (bacterial, viral). Shingles or herpes zoster is a possibility. Honestly it is very difficult to say without seeing the lesions in question. A visit with your doctor is definitely in order. Good luck
