Seriouly, I explained today to my colleagues that for almost as long as I can remember, i've experienced pain in my head if I were to shake my head vigourously/quickly.
This is hard to explain without a physical demonstration, but imagine doing a comedy double take when a lovely lady walks past..
The discomfort worsens considerably when shaking my head multiple times, but I can also feel it if I turn my head only once, to one side quickly. The pain the becomes a headache that can last several minutes to perhaps 30/40 mins I guess.
The pain manifests as what feels like a ache on the top side of my brain. And I can also feel my brain jarring internally when shaking my head.
I demonstrated how little speed was required to generate instant mild pain to my colleagues, they were shocked. They demonstrated to me how quickly they could move thier heads with absolutley no discomfort, I was shocked.
To put it another way, when I watch people headbanging at concerts, I wince instead of joining in (i'd like to join in).
I've played through many seasons of club rugby, and played rough & tumble like most lads without any real issue. I can also recall smashing my head on very hard ground as a teenager, and also a strange spate of being able to shake my head backwards & forwards like a ragdoll without pain when entertaining at parties as a child...(don't ask, basically an attention seeker)
So, in my paranoid self diagnosis ive come to several theories..
a) I damaged the lining of my brain when a child through smashing it around so much, that im now sensitive to sudden movements
b) My brain is actually normal sized but trapped in a big 63cm skull, so rattles around more easily than most, nothing to really worry about
c) I have some kind of undiagnosed condition that I should seriously consider seekeing advice for.
d) a combination or all of the above
Any head specialists in the house that can offer thier advice?
And yes, I know, I should have probably looked into this a long time ago. I'm just a man. Plus, I honestly presumed it was normal for a long time.
