Sensitive area on head, swollen and warm, migraine. What it could it be and cure?

Hi I have had a sensitive area on the left side if my head around the crown area. It feels swollen and warm. Now I feel a ridge on the top of my head right at my hairline at middle of my forehead. MRI is normal. ENT said no sinus problems have felt pressure and had several migraines now on Topamax 50mg. What could this be? Rheumatologist said it could just be a RA flare up.

Hi and welcome to HCM.
It sounds like migraine attack or neuralgia (facial or trigeminal). There is no specific cause,but some authors think that infecion, cold wheather and wind or some food can provoke such paijn. So you should rest in dark room,avoid noise,wind and cold water. Take nonsteroid painkillers and wait for improvement. It can be autoimmune disorder as weel,as a part of RA. In this case steroid therapy might be considered. Wish you good health.
