Sensitive head


7 years ago I was in a car accident and had a bad concussion. SInve then I get daily headaches but what worries me more is that my scelp is super sensitive where I hit my head. If anyone pulls my hair softly in that area I get a miggrane and if I massage or just lightly scratch my head in that area it tingles. It doen not hurt like I want to start crying but it does feel sensitive and I am aware of some discomfort. i don' t know how else to put it.

I never went for a cat scan or any thing like that after the accident as my finances are very budgetted. Should I be worried?
