Crazy headaches and face pain - Help!

I've posted before but I think I need to post again as an update.

Beginning of October I started getting headaches and pain in behind my nose. It would be pain and then radiate to my forehead and eyes, and then all over head. At times the pain would be very bad then subside.

I had a sinus x-ray which was normal. At one point I went to ER and they did a CT Scan of my head which was normal. Back to my family Dr who prescribed antibiotics and Flonase even with no sinus infection. The face pain actually got a little better, but still there. I went to an ENT who said I had a significantly deviated septum. Ordered a CT scan of my sinuses which returned normal except for a very small rention cyst in my Maxillary on my left. He said it is harmless and wouldn't cause any symptoms.

He said my headaches and face pain were not caused by my sinuses. What about the septum? There is such think as Middle Turbinate Headaches which are caused by contact between the septum and the mddle turbinate. I asked if they were in contact? He said, "Sure they are but if I did surgery on everyone who had contact between them, thats all i would be doing." So I left, and here I am.

Oh yes, Also went to an Oral Surgeon to see about TMJ. He didn't think it was TMJ and my dentist said it was not caused by any teeth problems.

Still have headaches and pain behinf nose, eyes, top of teeth, forehead, and back of head. Occasionally get ear pressure in both ears. The pain seems to be both sides but may be slightly more on the right (which is the side of my deviated septum). Tylonel, Advil do not help. I've stopped the Flonase to see if it would get worse (my thinking is that the Flonase reduced the contact by reducing inflammation). So far I haven't felt it get much worse after about 4 days off of Flonase.

I am truly at a loss. CT Scans of Head and Sinuses. ENT says he doesn't know. It doesn't feel like a neorological thing although that may be my next step. I am still thinking its this Middle Turbinate headache thing. Any ideas?
