Hi all, I'm curious if anyone has any idea why we get one kind of head pain over the other kinds we can also get with this illness. eg I currently have a ME head pain (woke up with it and feeling a little ill..nauseus.. all I assume the after effects of being taken shopping yesterday) which is what I'd not describe as a normal headache but more like my whole head and brain is all over sore. Like an injury kind of soreness as if you'd grazed something type of sore. My whole head feels like how my elbow would feel if I feel down and grazed it. What would cause this kind of "sore" head pain over the normal headache. I do know I can relate my POTS to "my head is going to explode" kind of pressure head pain I get when upright which is different again to normal headache. Anyone, got ideas on what causes the "sore" on and through head thing this feeling like my head is a sore thing is extending down into behind my ears a little (where you'd rub if you had put in ear drops and wanted it to go in better). Back of neck is quite right with this either.. a little sore too.
