Random and weird skull creases

I too have recently discovered weird creases developing in my skull. First was the back of the head, by the neck running side to side, in March. I talked to my doctor in June and we did an MRI. Nothing showed up. She assumed it's a fatty tumor, which wouldn't show up on an MRI. I've been monitoring it. Seems like it's stretching out more. Last week I felt this tickle on top, like a big was in my hair. This went on for 2 days. Today I notice another crease and bump on the top of my head. About 3 fingers long. Anyone have any answers? My MRI didn't show anything. Gp didn't seem concerned.

  • Hi.

    I too have creases in the top of my skull. When I went to my GP I was initially laughed at when I said I thought my skull was changing shape. Anyway I was sent for a head X-ray and it said I have a venous lake and was told it's s fine and to live with it. However I didn't feel well and saw another doctor. This time I was sent for a head CT scan and was told I had a few benign lesions on top of each other, this made parts of my skull feel soft. Again I was told they are ok. Fortunately this time I had a series of blood tests and found my platelets were high.

    I now know I have ET.

    Some days though I can feel blood pumping over the top of my skull. I may go back and see my neurologist one day just for a check up. I hope this helps.

    If you are not happy with your doctor making assumptions ask to see another doctor and be referred to a neurologist.

    Hope this helps.


  • I have just posted elsewhere on this. I get something that feels similar with vasculitis. It was accompanied by migraine and vertigo generally feeling sick and fatigued. Not sure if this is of any hel0 to you.

  • It's crazy how we are laughed at and told its nothing. What is ET?

  • My head feels so warm and sensitive. In warm weather
