I have a constant headaches all the time...literally. They NEVER go away.
I started having some headaches when I was in high school....maybe around 15 or so. I'm 25 now. And its only gotten worse over the years.
I was thinking it was tension headaches. But the past year or so, I've been thinking maybe sinus. But now I have no clue.
The headaches mostly accur around my forehead, over my eyes. Recently, over the past year or so, I've developped other things with this. Now, I get pain all over my face. To the point of where I actually don't even want to talk, because it hurts so bad to open my mouth. It hurts in my cheeks, my jaw, ...everywhere.
I have also started having trouble with my ears along with it. My ears have become so sensitive. Sound hurts them, and even when I talk on the phone, I'm always taking the phone from my ear for a second because the sound feels like its vibrating down in my ears. But I have had some ear trouble in the past when I was younger. I have had tubes put in them several times as a baby and the last time when I was 9 years old. So, at this point, I can't really say that my headaches have anything to do with my ear problems. They do seem worse when the pain from my headache goes into my face.
I saw an eye doctor about 6 months ago because of the headaches and due to constant severe itching in my eyes ( to the point where I rub them literally almost raw) and I have severe swelling around my eyes (to the point where it hurts to hold them open and I feel like my eyes are stinging. The doctor said I had major allergies in my eyes and because he could see that I had allergy pumps all around the back of my eyes.
He said if he had to choose right then what was causing my headache problems, he'd probably say sinus rather than my eyes. But he said he wouldn't know for sure until he did a regular yearly eye examine...which I was unable to go to (should now though) .
I still think it could be sinus because of all the allergies in my eyes. But I don't know.
I've looked up all different kind of headaches. I haven't found any that seem to match all my symptoms. I haven't found any at all that say anything about pain all over in my face.
I have looked up face pain not long ago and found certain conditions that do cause severe face pain and some that can be accompanyed by headaches.
So now, I don't know whether the face pain is most likely to be coming from headaches or vise-versa.
Also, about 5 years ago, I had several incidents where a small area of my head would go kind of numb, almost as if it freezed up. Usually happened while I was at work. It was usually on the left side of my head. And sometimes, I still get a tingling feeling in a small area.
Has anyone else had these symptoms ? Does anyone have any idea what could be causing it ?
