FROM OUR EXPERTS
I started having headaches about three years ago. To me they seemed to be cluster headaches. They came about one o'clock in the afternoon everyday from December to February. This year, however, my headaches started in mid September and ended mid October. After what I assume was my cluster period this year I began having pain in my left temple that lasts all day long. Sometimes its an intense throbbing and the rest of the time its just a constant annoying ache but it hasn't gone away. I've had an MRI and CT scans and an x ray done in the past all of which were normal. My doctor has not helped me with any of this. He just continues to give me pain killers. I have done research and haven't found anything so I am hoping somebody on here can give me an answer or tell me what to do next. Ashley.
You're quite right to question this new headache. As you probably know, cluster headaches don't last that long, so it's most likely not relate...
Full Question: My 6 year old daughter has been complaining of a terrible pain in the left side of her head (Temple area) she had this headache a few weeks ago and also the last 3 mornings, she doesn't seem to have any other symptoms other than also complaining of a stomach ache, but they don't necessarily coincide with each other, she had an MRI about 8-9 Months ago and it came out clean. Is there anything you can recommend? I can't find much on headaches in Children. Thank you in advance, Michaela. Answer: Dear Michaela; Sometimes, children this young have symptoms that they don't recognize and tell you about. A parent's observations are as important as what the child says. When she has a headache or stomach ache, does she shy away from light or noise? Sensitivity to sound or light could indicate Migraine. Is there any history of Migraines, sinus headaches, or "sick headaches" on either side of the family? Most of the time, wh...
Hello. I'm a 55 yo man, former smoker, have lone paroxysmal afib (6 years) and been suffering with increasingly bad sinus problems for the last 20 years. I've seen 2 ENT's and two allergists over the last 11 years and been given K and Z packs as well as steroidal sprays and most common antibiotics. I've never had a CT scan despite insistent pleading.
I have been in constant sinus distress for about a year now with almost total loss of smell and currently have persistent headaches like I've never felt before. I know 'normal' sinus headaches and face pain and this is different. I feel a very sharp stabbing left temple region pain that radiates into what feels like the middle of my brain.
Of the doctors I've seen one wanted me to go to an Eye clinic, one wanted to enroll me in Women's Balance class (???), one said I had a "pooched over" septum, and the other threw her hands up in the air after antibacterials and antifungals and sprays failed. She ordered a C...
