Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
head injuries should be considered serious if you have:
1) Vomiting
2) Double Vision
3) Convulsion
4) Un-responsiveness
If you did not have any of these symptoms, then you need not worry much. Tenderness and tingling sensation are a part of normal healing but they occuring at the end of 4 weeks is something abnormal. It should have healed until now.
You need to see a surgeon who can examine the local area and probably start you on some anti-biotics to help in the healing.
Without examining the area it will be difficult to comment on the reason for tenderness.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be more than happy to help you if you need any further clarifications.

I ve been experiencing intermittent, sudden, sharp, debilitating pain in my both hands (one or the other, not simultaneously) that lasts from just a few seconds to up to 15 minutes, during which I m not able to use my affected hand. This has been happening for about the last 3 or so months. The pain in both hands is located along the outer side, centered between my wrist bone and the knuckle of my little finger. It comes on regardless of whether I m using my hand or doing nothing at all. The pain feels like a broken bone, but then stops just as suddenly as it started. This happens anywhere from once every 2 weeks to once a day, with no discernible cause. I am constantly at a computer keyboard and use my hands quite a bit for all sorts of activities, but this doesn t seem to be joint-related. Any ideas as to what the cause could possibly be?
