In brief: ?neuralgia

This may be neuralgia which is an irritated/inflamed superficial scalp nerve.
However since there is associated tenderness the scalp should be examined for signs of inflammation or infection. Neuralgia isn't a serious problem and usually resolves on its own but Tylenol (acetaminophen) or antiinflammatories like Advil or Aleve may help. Have your MD examine you to be sure if symptoms persist.
