These spots are know as pressure pain sensitivity or pathological tenderness of pericranial muscles and their tendons attachments on skull bones.
Do you suffer from chronic tension headache or migraine?
I have also had a tenderness point on the left side of my head as well. I have had it for at least 3 years. Just today it seemed to have moved down to my hairline towards my forehead (seemingly moving towards my left temple) I asked my doctor about it during a full physical (July 2010) and he told me to keep an eye on it and thought it could be a hair follicle, type of problem. (he felt my entire head) I wouldn't say it felt like a headache though. It's just more of the tenderness I feel. I massage it whenever I feel it's tenderness and it seems to go away in an hour or so. (for the past 3-4 years) Does anybody have a similar story? Does anybody know what it may be?
my 8 year old recently beggan with the same symptoms tender to the touch on her right side right above the the temple and from what I have researched it could be sinuses can any body tell me anything more?
