Radiology/MRI SCAN PAIN

I have had the exact same reaction to repeated MRIs. While the MRI is going on, it feels like something is being pulled out of the hair follicles on the back of my head. The burning sensation almost feels like a reverse tattoo (someone tattooing the inside of my scalp). I have found no explanation for this sensation online and no MRI lab techs I've spoken to can explain it. I've had four or five brain MRIs at multiple clinics in the last couple of years and this happens at every facility.
