Sensitive scalp?

I wonder if anyone has the same or similar symptom of having a super-sensitive scalp?
Anything that touches my scalp whether a brush, hand, hat. it results in very painful sensation.

Any clue as to why this happens?

My dad had those problems but is now better because of Freddd's protocol. My dad wasn't officially diagnosed with anything however he had many ME-like symptoms. He couldn't even wear socks because the elastic dug into his skin causing him pain. I put it down to allodynia caused by nutritional deficiencies such as b12 and magnesium.

Hi @Nielk,

Not sure why this happens, but I have very sensitive scalp as well. Was wondering if you're still dealing with this. I feel I'm starting to slowly get some insights into my own sensitivities, but I still have much more to consider.

Best, Wayne
