Scalp tenderness, swollen vein, on aleeve and Tylenol, ct scan done, had MRI of cervical spine normal. varicose vein?

I'm 40 y.o female with scalp tenderness for about 6 months. Tender to the touch and feels as if it is a swollen vein. Been to my dr several times and am on aleeve twice a day and Tylenol in between. Had a ct scan with dye of brain in June, was unremarkable, had an MRI of cervical spine was fine. Medication has done nothing really....could it be a varicose vein?

Hi, it appears that you have migraine, due to more flow to the artery in the temple bone. Probably you need to have treatment with vasoconstrictors.
I advise you to consult a physician for diagnosis and treatment. it also could be a cluster head ache, or due to anxiety, or tension. Sinusitis is also one of the causes for such pain. Thank you.
