View Full Version : Sore Scalp?

Does anyone else get a sore scalp. Like if you wash your hair or rub your head it feels like a big bruise on your head? It's more when I move my hair around. I am losing hair like crazy right now so I was wondering if it was related to my lupus or just some other weird thing going on.

I haven't bumped my head or anything lately either.

Hi STaylor

I've had that before. Sometimes it happens when I'm not feeling with...sick with the flue. The thought of brushing my hair would make me cry.

I have no idea what causes it. I think it must have something to do with nerve endings. Like you hadn't bumped my head or anything.

It will be interesting to see if someone comes up with an answer to this one. :)

Yes! I have that too! Feels almost like if you wear your hair always parted in one way then you move it, it is a weird hurt feeling. I actually made my doctor look to see if it was bruised or what. She told me that my scalp was just sensitive like the rest of me in a flare right now. For me it just happens when I'm already losing hair.

You are not alone! :D
