Weird feeling in back of head

Hey everyone so I keep getting this really weird feeling in the back of my head like right under my skull or even on the skull and I would itch it but the feeling doesn’t go away even when I do? It’s like a burning sensation that kind of tickles? If that makes sense it doesn’t really hurt BUT ITS SO IRRITATING! Like I literally cannot stand it anymore, you would think it would go away in seconds but I get it as long as 10 minutes or longer if I’m so focused on what the hell it is!!! is this normal? I’m afraid I have a tumour or something I had an MRI done months ago and everything was fine but I only got one because of a concussion..it’s kind of like a buzzing feeling too, it’s a bit hard to describe but that’s the best way I can describe it! HAS ANYONE HAD THIS? I feel like I’m so obsessed with thinking about it!! I think this could be apart of my OCD too when I get the feeling. How do you get this to go away!? I hate it so much

you are ok, honestly. yes weird head things happen all the time. it will calm down when you do. really tension causes all these things.

Do you take B vitamins- what you are describing sounds like something people experience from niacin, a niacin flush. Have you started any new meds or changed doses? Could be a side effect.

Does vitamin b cause it or something?

Yes specifically Niacin, it is vitamin B3. Do you take that, or did you start any meds or change dosages? I am getting something similar from Effexor.

I take some vitamins but I don’t think that is the same thing you’re talking about. Whenever I get irritable or sensitive to things it triggers the tickle feeling in my neck and it drives me up the wall
