Usually teeth pain associated with headaches is from sinusitus or a sinus infection. Consider trying some Sudafed along with an over the counter pain medication to see if that helps. It it continues you may want to consider seeing the doc. Where is the headache specifically located when your teeth ache? A better description of where the headache is might help more to in determining if it sounds like sinuses or not.

Another possible cause of all of these symptoms
can be trigger points in the muscles.

Cheekbones and around the eyes is your sinuses. See your doc for a set of sinus x-rays as it sounds like you may have a sinus infection or severe sinusitis. To help prevent furture sinus problems be sure to take a good antioxidant supplement daily.

Consider posting your symptoms on the Temporo-Mandibular Joint Disorder Board on this site. TMJD can have symptoms similar to the ones you describe. If you rule out sinus trouble, a visit to your dentist may help to determine whether TMJD is possibly causing your pain. The dentist can then refer you to a TMJD specialist. That said, I would rule out the sinus trouble FIRST, then work on ruling out TMJD. Good luck!

I have the same problems that have listed for the last 15 years. along with 4 sinus surgeries I now am 100 times worse than when I started. I have seen over 100 doctors over the years all with the same view that when they look ay my ct scans, they all say the same thing that nothing shows up at all and they do ot know what to do. however, I have just found an ent that has just told me that he thinks that even though the scans look ok, he thinks that tne sinus is still not opened properly and believes that it is very possibly the cause of all the pain. I know that it is a terrible life altering problem where u think that u will have to live this way for the rest of your life, but please try to hang in there because help is out there somewhere.I will probably have another surgery shortly and i let u know how i fair.Please have faith and resolve because i know that help is around the corner.If u have any questions u would like to ask me please don't hesitate to write. I am more than happy to help!I would like to know what sort of testing u have had so I could advise u a little better. Please write back, I would really like to help.

I had headaches, loose teeth, gum disease, lower back pain, chest pain, sore joints etc. for years - that got worse as I got older. It's a long story that I write in other sections. I linked these to my mercury-silver dental amalgams.

My headaches would come and go, like around face near the eyes and nose (maybe the sinuses?) before I had my amalgams removed. The interesting thing about these headaches, is that they got intense when my tooth broke and exposed one amalgam. That is one of the things that gave me clue of what was causing all my medical problems.

A long story short - I'm pretty much cured of those headaches and other pains. It's been a little over nine years since I had these poisons removed from my teeth - long enough to detoxify the rest of my body after removal so that these headaches are a thing of the past.

I should also mention that at times, the shoulder and neck pain was bad too - and near the shoulder blades. It's all a distant memory....

wow, it is certainly insightful to read things like this. i have had daily 'sinus' headaches constantly for about 3 years. sinus surgery about 2 years ago did not really help. it did reduce the amount of tissue/pressure, but it didn't remove the inflammatory feeling, the swollen lymph nodes, general feeling of fatigue, or headache over the forhead at top of the bridge of the nose (frontal sinuses).

unfortunately, what i think sometimes happens with sinus surgery is that the frontal sinus (behind the forehead) is what causes people the most trouble, but it also the most difficult to get at. most doctors do not even try to get there. it is very close to the eyes and the brain and is risky. the easiest tissues to get at are the inflamed inferior and middle turbinates. sometimes turbinate reduction is done to help allow access to other sinuses. well, you need the turbinates for warming and humidifying air. there are apparently a lot of patients complaining of serious consequences of over-removal of the turbinates--especially in the 80's or early 90's, before new forms of functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) were available. do a google search on "empty nose syndrome" and you will find information on this. for a couple weeks after my surgery, i had the very alarming feeling of dry cold air going straight into my head with very little in the nose to block it. it feels a little like "brain freeze" (when you drink an very cold drink fast and get a headache). it is much worse than the feeling of congestion, which for me was usually just a dull headache. luckily, the empty nose feeling went away. but my sense of smell never fully recovered from the surgery. i feel like my nose doesn't have normal moisture in it. i occasionally get out small amounts of very sticky mucous, which leads me to think that the sinuses behind my forhead might be gummed up with it--causing the headache. [sorry for the gory details].

my lymph nodes under my ears are constantly swollen and i also have tension at the back of the base of my skull. i test negative on allergy tests which means i am diagnosed with nonallergic rhinitis/sinusitis. i feel allergic, though, with dry eyes and redness around the eyes. there are probably allergens out there that have yet to be discovered or they are not being tested for.

i have tried a variety of nasal sprays, systemic steroid, sudafed/guaifenesin combos, antibiotics, nasal rinses (which i recommend for sinus sufferers).

it appears my options right now are getting more surgery (for the ethmoid, and possibly frontal), moving out west and hoping my symptoms will magically disappear, or getting accupuncture.

if anyone has any ideas, please let me know.

I have the same problem, my jaw and teeth always hurt also my neck to i suffer from severe tension migraine headaches and my Dr. told me the pain can become so intense that it radiates to different parts of the face and neck, but teeth pain can also be a sign of sinus problems, so i suggest you see your dr and get your sinuses checked also.
