Pregnancy symptom 1,241

It's kind of a joke that anything unusual you experience during pregnancy can be chalked up to said pregnancy.  Runny nose?  Common with pregnancy.  Hair loss or hair abundance?  Yep.  Unusual rash?  That too.  Along with the typical symptoms of tiredness, nausea, increased appetite, increased sense of smell, and muscle pain, feel free to add anything you've never dealt with before that happens along while you're pregnant.

So far this pregnancy, mine have been:
- one extremely swollen gland right below my jaw; thankfully this has resolved.
- inability to control body temperature; I'm freezing, I'm hot, I'm freezing...
- sensitive teeth

But what tops it all, is that my scalp has heartburn.  Normally I get extremely bad heartburn about halfway through the pregnancy, continuing until delivery.  But right now, after eating any and every meal, the very top of my scalp tingles to the point of hurting and lasts for about an hour after the meal is over.

If any of you can shed some light on this, I'd be grateful.  If any of you think this is really weird, don't bother to comment - I already know :)
