    You will die.

    Before you come up with something original?

    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.

    I have some really good advice for you. Wanna hear it?

    My only advice.

    Don’t go to Wimbledon to watch the tennis.

    I’ve spent years not doing what you are about to tell me what to not do.

    Thanks Mr Cooper.

    are you serious?
    If it were you, would you not be interested in knowing why you cant shake your head properly without pain? Particularly if people around you were telling you this was the opposite of normal – with shocked looks on their faces?

    Im off to drink a couple litres, will report back..

    This is hard to explain without a physical demonstration, but imagine doing a comedy double take when a lovely lady walks past..

    Being one of those whose eyes stick out on stalks when a lovely lady walks by, I am finding it difficult to imagine your predicament. Although the eye thing does smart a little.

    If this thread is anything to go by then you have indeed damaged your head

    Well I might, but I’d probably ask a doctor not a mountain biking website famed for being populated by computer programmers. I’d also probably have had it checked some time ago but I definitely wouldn’t get uptight when the IT MTBers took the piss a little. ๐Ÿ˜€

    im not uptight dude, just wondering if you were serious.

    as it happens, despite many a verbal bashing on STW – ive found (decent and seemingly educated) answers to any question ive ever thrown at members on here, plus many questions ive seen asked by others. As many people on here guinely seem keen to help.

    Ive also heard of many proffesionals on here in medicine and other brainy fields, it seems clever people also ride bikes. ๐Ÿ™‚

    STW is my default oracle.

    before I go to all that hassle of bothering to make a phonecall, etc, I thought it best to gather a bunch of advice from helpful people.

    And unhelpful.

    No nerves in the brain so it doesn’t experience pain – QI or something ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just to try to put you at ease, mine’s the same, people are different, some won’t have pain, I do.

    I can make a proper diagnosis if you film yourself doing it and post it on here.

    I have a similar thing. Even a relatively slight jolt to the head from, for instance, throwing a stone in a river, results in an immensely painful headache/migraine that takes nearly a week to disappear. I can immediately tell when its happened, and have to basically write off the next day as it gradually gets worse and worse, whole jaw seems to tighten up to the point where i have difficult talking. Ibuprofen helps, aspiring/paracetamol don’t. The doctors response was “don’t do it then”.

    It could be that your childhood damage has frayed some of the strings (for want of a better word) that hold your brain in the middle part of your skull. The only solution will be to get someone to dig a number of exploratory holes in your skull and effectively re-rig the guy ropes to stop your brain moving around.

    I’ve heard there’s this cutting-edge new treatment that might be just the thing you need.

    i get brain pain too. i put it down to my body trying to cram such a big intelligent brain in a small skull

    interestingly I suffer from spates of jaw tightening too, immensly frustrating too. But it seems to be related to stress for me

    same here, its stress…. or my big brain trying to escape my tiny skull

    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.

    Have you considered chopping your head off? See if that helps?

    On a serious note, the OP’s problem could be sinus related.
