I had chemo which finished about two and a half years ago. Ever since my head has tended to get hot at night, but the last few weeks I am also getting a tightness across the top of my head all day and night. It is possible it is stress as I am now trying to support several people with serious health problems including a dear friend with cancer, but I am suddenly wondering if it has any connection with the chemo or the hair loss it caused. My fringe feels heavy though it has only just been cut and I feel better for pushing it back in a hairband. My scalp too seems tender. I am not on any medication as my cancer was not hormonal. It seems such a minor thing to make a fuss about but it is making life a struggle as effectively I have a twenty four hour headache.
