Painful spots on scalp

I have RA and Fibromyalgia. Has anyone experienced sensitivity on their scalp? Some days I have the most painful spots on my scalp when I touch them.. other days its my whole head. Some days ( very rare) no pain at all. I've mentioned it to my rheumotologist and my GP. They both look at me with a confused look but don't really comment on it. I am taking lyrics for nerve pain in other parts of my body but it doesn't touch this pain.
