Hi folks. I’d like to discuss one phenomenon I always wanted to talk about.
When I started to go bald, I remember there was no pain involved, I even read the topics about itchy scalp and all these complaints and I remember thinking, well if only my scalp was itchy, I could use that feeling as a tool to find out if meds are working or not.
Then I started propecia, and itching came, it was horrible. Aweful itchy scalp. Over the years I solved the itching problem completely so I dont suffer from it anymore. I’m saying this here only to cover the pain issues completely. I do NOT want this topic to be about itching though.
I want to discuss two different types of pain I have experienced since my mpb started.
The first of these is kinda a needle like feelink, it usually covers a small area(3x3 to 5x5 cm lets say), and I can compare it to a feeling how it could feel like if you had a brush of needles and you pressed gently that brush to some area of your scalp. It lasts 5, 10, 20 seconds, then it fades away slowly. Anyone had this one ever? This type of pain is not usually too intensive.
Second pain is in my case VERY VERY rare. but its like regular pain, like you had a open wound and you chucked some water on it. this one is quite intensive.
Do you guys know what I’m talking here?
Anyone has any idea or anything to say to this?
