This is my first post to the board and I need some help and/or advice.
About 6 months ago, I started getting daily headaches which were concentrated
around my eyes and back to my ears. My primary doctor thought it was a Sinus issue
so he sent me to an ENT. After several tests and trials of medications, my headaches
persisted and the ENT felt that I should see a Neurologist. The Neurologist thought it
was chronic tension headaches so she put me on Nortryptyline and Propanolol, which
I am still taking. This seemed to take the edge off the headaches but they seemed to
transform into constant pressure around my eyes, cheeks and ears with some
occasional head pain. I recently moved and went to see another ENT who thought it
could be Eustacion Tube Dysfunction. He prescribed Entex which helps a little with the
ear pressure. He did another series of tests but everything was normal so he
recommended to go and see another Neurologist in my new town which I plan on
I had had seasonal allergies for years now. A once a season steriod shot seems to
have helped in the past. I am wondering if this 6-month old issue could be allergy
related (maybe food allergy or other typical allergy). Also, someone on the headache
board mentioned that it may be a TMJ problem. Any advice would be appreciated!
