Migraine Headache FAQ

  • Headaches: I have suffered from what are now daily headaches for the past few years. About a month ago I had sinus surgery and a deviated septum fixed. This was in response to CT scans that showed my sinuses were infected and or "thickened" and were not responding to antibiotics. I also have TMJ, for which I was fitted with a splint about 3 years ago. I am pretty much healed from my surgery, but I feel I am right back to my chronic headaches. I wake up with headaches. Sometimes they are entirely on the left side of my head, ear and face, sometimes they are all over my head, sometimes they are in the frontal area through my eyes and cheeks. I have all 4 of my wisdom teeth in, which I've seemed to notice the roots of my teeth aching more. It seems no matter what I do, I cannot get these headaches under control. I'm feeling like the sinus surgery has only helped me minimally, and the splint that used to help me quite a bit is just not taking care of the pain anymore. I am taking some type of pain meds every day, whether it be sinus headache meds, Advil, my migraine prescription or Tylenol. Sometimes meds work, sometimes they don't. It seems they are just a "band-aid" on the problem, and never really take care of it. It's like I can't take the right thing. I need help! I am thinking now, since after the sinus surgery things are only minimally improved,that the pain seems to be a lot in my jaw, ear, face, and now teeth. Do I need to see an oral surgeon or get my wisdom teeth pulled, or what? Please respond. I am desperate for help. ... Visitor from Minnesota     (answer)

  • I have been having headaches for some time now since February 2002 and they have increased overtime. I have also had the occasional numbness in my left hand side and sometimes shakey hands (which have stopped for sometime now). I have seen three neurologists and done MRI all have proved that I do not have anything. They then suspect Complicated Migraine but I have not responded well to medication. I recently noticed that my wisdom toth on my right hand side is bent and may be touching the nerve area. I visited a Dentist who does not do general dentistry but rather diagnosed that I had Myofascial referral patterns of pain and gave me a gadget to put in my mouth to wear as he discoverd that I clench teeth and my mouth was all sore. He advised that I could if I wanted to, remove my wisdom tooth if that is what I wanted but that he did not think that's the cause of my problem. I see another Dentist next week. What do you think? Could the wisdom tooth have something to do with it as the device does not explain away some of the numbness I sometimes feel in my hands and some of the spasms I sometimes have. ...

  • Chronic headaches for years and no doctor can figure it out: I am having daily chronic headaches for years that doctors can't figure out. I have had CT scan, MRI, and spinal tap with no results. I have been seeing a chiroprator with little results, with tension in the neck, shoulders. My dentist said my bite is off and my left jaw pops. Will braces help? ...
