Tender spot on top of head, driving me insane
« on: February 11, 2014, 12:20:59 AM »
There's this small spot on the top of my head, and whenever I press it I get slight pain. Super paranoid about brain damage, this is driving me insane since the spot is right above the left side of y prefrontal cortex, and if that goes then my personality and decision making go as well. I'd rather die than lose my prefrontal cortex. I can't go to the doctor due to a crazy family that hates doctors/I have no money. This is killing me.

Welcome to the forums. Are you sure you aren't just over thinking this? Is there any time recently where you may have bumped your head and caused it to be sore? I'm sure a benign explanation is to blame for it and talking about brain damage is definitely a hypochondria worthy leap in reasoning.

Especially with the skull protecting it as well, That's a pretty tough bone to go unnoticed.

Welcome to the boards. :action-smiley-065:

Sometimes when I'm home alone, I fill my bathtub with tomato sauce and pretend I'm a meatball.

No, I'm positive I didn't hit it at all. That's partly why I'm so concerned. I'm very careful with my skull, I even make sure not to move it quickly so that I don't get a diffuse axonal brain injury.
