It started around june of 2002 I get this mild pain only on the right side of the head along with burning electriclike shooting pain. It does it everyday ive been to a few doctors and had 3 cat scans done and some blood test which came up negative. Im trying to get them to do a mri and also to get to a neauolgist but with cheap or no insurance thats hard to do. Im going to rule out anxiety, thyroid, blood surger,annemia,and all that other good stuff. Can you give me any ideas. P/s I did have 2 ear operations about 11 years ago but saw an ent doctor everything is fine. Kevin1965

I definitely suggest you get in to see a neurologist. They will be your best bet as to figuring out what the pain is. So just stay on it until you can find one you can afford.

The burning pain sounds as though it could be a nerve. There are many nerves that run through out our head/scalp that can cause intense pain when irratated. Do you keep a pain journal? That could help you figure out if you have triggers and what they might be. This can also be a helpful tool for doctors to help in diagnosing.

Kevin I have that too. I have had it for about 4 years on and off. I have a bad neck right in the back of my head where the neck meet the head. It cracks and pops often. I was told after a number of test it was nerves. It isn't a pleasnt feeling. But after all the test where done and I found out what it was is was not so unbearable..

I'm with meblond01, i think your problem could be related to your spine. you have obviously had every test under the sun bar the MRI, i'd go and speak with a physio first and then chiro. I suffer from burning, shooting, electric type shocks and its diagnosed as cervical headaches. May be similar and less evasive that an MRI. Check it out hopefully this might shed some light for you.

Burning At Top of Head, Like Acid Being Poured Over Head
Hello,

My wife has had this burning feeling on the top of her head, like the radius of an eraser head for 4 months now. We have had mri's scans, acupuncture, chiroprcture, and nothing seems to work. She has had some ringing in her ears ever since we went on a flight about a year ago but that has cleared up after a through cleaning from e.n.t. doctor. Anyone ever find a solution?

Burning Pain Right Side of Head
See your dentist. It could be TMJ - temperal mandibular joint syndrome. The jaw is a complex joint. Teeth clenching and bruxism can cause severe one-sided headaches, neck and back pain, ear aches, jaw pain, eye pain, sinus pain etc etc. It is simple to cure. A good dentist will fit you for a splint you wear at night (similar to a retainer). Headaches will disappear in days...no drugs!! Good Luck!

Headaches and Caffeine
I was reading that caffeine helps with headaches. I also noticed that it is one of the ingredients in Excedrine. You might try some coffee or soda for temporary releif, or Excedrine in until you are able to find out what is going on. Hope the pain goes away. Headaches are aweful.

Several Years ago, I had the same shooting pains thru my head, Thought I had MS. Doctor did some blood work and found my B12 levels were very low. After taking high doses of B12 I was fine.
