Default Sensitivity / Dull Pain on or around left temple

This post will be very similar to a post from Utah Chriss back in Feb. of 2009. My symptoms are exactly the same. Unfortunately he never posted his diagnosis. I will quote much of his post...

It only hurts when I graze it it softly or rub moderately. Increased pressure from my fingers does not necessarily mean an increase in pain or sensitivity. On gross observation it looks as normal as the other temple on the left side. No lumps or anything. I do not get headaches.

When I'm not touching it I don't feel it, when I fun my fingers over my right temple I feel it.
I'm currently taking prednisone and anti-virals with some OTC sinus medication. This combination of meds seems to have dulled the sensitivity even more. It's not really painful, more of a discomfort when grazed with the fingers. It is virtually non-existent in the morning. I can feel it after being awake for an hour or so, then throughout the day. After grazing it once, and feeling the sensitivity, you have to wait a few seconds before you can graze the area and feel it again... very odd.

Look for thread number 76323 from Utah Chris - he has/had the same symptoms.

Any advise would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks mrsD. Just to be clear, it is the temple on the left-hand side of my head... not the right, as Utah Chris mentions in his post.

I don't know what is wrong with you , but I do know that sometimes that area can be aggravated by your lifestyle.

1) a poor pillow that is hard that you sleep on.

2) A cap you wear that may be too tight

3) an inflamed jaw joint. This can come from the teeth, a misalignment

Try this, a ice pack on it twice a day, with a cloth to protect your skin for 15-20 minutes. If the ice pack helps, it suggests an inflamed joint, from some stressor. (clenching jaw, bite that is off, or arthritis for some reason.)

These are beginning things to try...investigate. Sometimes they are clues to the problem.
