Ohh man, i just read about it on the internet. It really sounds nasty to be honest. I mean, taking into account that it is a parasitic on aquatic animals, particularly fish, and it even causes scalp pain, it really sounds dreadful! I have never suffered of this, however i know that my father has once suffered of this, and he had no idea what was this. He was just having some terrible scalp pains, and noone could understand what was it caused by. He started to order medical marijauna from, since it is legal, so it would help him overcome the pain.

Umm. Yesssss! I'm stressed. Who isn't but my hair stings like bristles. I recently cut it shorter from very long hoping for relief. Scalp stopped hurting but now bristles of shorter hair sting like crazy unless wet. Thinking may have to take it all off. But I'm sick of being told its psychological. Seriously. I've been telling people for a year my "hair" hurts, at the roots. Now this?????

My scalp hurts too but, it feels more like I was sunburned. And anything touching it bothers it

My hair was hurting a lot (stinging and felt like it was being pulled). I shaved my head a few days ago and got INSTANT RELIEF. I can even rub my stubble now on the parts that used to kill me and it doesn't even hurt. Maybe it is the weight of the hair that was causing the pain?

I wish I could help you Diana... I have had the scalp pain for about 1 1/2 years and it can get really bad. I did go see a pain specialist and had Bilateral Occipital Neuralgia shots done on both sides of my skull and it did help with some of the stabbing knife pains but I still have the burning. I also can't pull my hair because the pain won't go away in that one area that was pulled. Needless to say, I comb my hair once a day and very carefully with a wide toothed comb. I have developed severe OCD and PTSD from this and have become teriffied of people and being touched. It is getting worse but am seeing a therapist and psychiatrist. It's hard to explain to others ESPECIALLY DOCTORS this condition... I hope you're OK!

Right now my hair is in the growing stage, but back when it was falling out, my scalp was so sore I could NOT comb, nor brush my hair! Blow-drying it and running my fingers gently through it was about all I could take...anyone know why? I was miserable and even sometimes would cry with the pain.
