What causes disesthesia of the scalp?
disesthesia of the scalp is a benign condition
Hello Diane. I have been through your question and understand your concern.
Burning sensation in the scalp, especially in the upper part are very common complaints in this age, and are considered totally benign. Unlike migraine and tensive type headache, this is not specific and not associated to any particular condition. There is no need to explore with further examinations and no treatment is really efficient. Some doctors would prescribe amitriptyline, but there is no clear evidence on its efficacy.
Do not worry, it is totally benign and self limiting.
Hope this helps. Please feel free using MHC again
