Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Do you have pain when you press or rub around your temple area? Does your jaw ever get tired/weak when you are eating? How about general aches and pains?
no, not around my temple, it is higher on my head, and is a very slight, nerve sensitive type of pain. No tiredness when eating, or really any general aches and pains. just these weird occasional things!
Ok. That's good .
Well, I must confess that your symptoms are just, to use a medical term, sorta generalized.....
They really don't point to any one issue to make me think of any serious things that could be going on that would need immediate evaluation. I think you would be safe to just watch things for now and follow up with your regular doc.
Does this make sense to you?
what is that nodule at the base of my skull, to get a larger feeling and begin to itch?
The nodules you are feeling are most likely lymph nodes and nothing to worry about
There are a gazillion (another medical term lol!) things that can cause itching of the scalp and associated areas. Have you tried any medicated shampoo such as head and shoulders?
no, this is a not a regular problem, and the only itching is on top of the lymph node, if that is what it is
surface itching would't be directly related to a lymph node or any other swelling under the skin........Sounds like you are going to need a hands-on exam to get to the bottom of this one. Chat is not a very powerful diagnostic tool :(
okay, I was going to try and find out what that bulging area was, and came upon this site.
Sorry I couldn't pinpoint what the swelling is for you....I can, however, tell you that it is very unlikely to be anything serious.
that is good, but I just wish I knew what it was, as it is very frustrating not to know!
I understand completely.....
Is there anything else you would like to ask me what you've got me here?
okay, goodbye and thanks for trying!
My pleasure. Have a good evening
