    Question Lupus/Headaches/Opaque Maxillary Sinus

    I have been diagnosed with lupus for about 5yrs now. For the past 3mos I have had incredible, undescribly headaches that are more painful and cause dizziness when I stand after sitting for awhile. So far the MRI tests have shown an opacified RT Maxillary sinus. Are there any conditions associated with opaque sinus and Lupus? or side effects? could the clogged sinus be causing the headaches. I have no symptoms of a sinus infection aside from the headache.

    I have read the threads regarding the Daily Persistant Headache and some of the syptoms sound very familiar. I have tried more sleep, not wearing my contacts, more water in the diet, Vicodin (doesn't help just makes me dizzy), Imitrex (the max daily). Since this has began they have found all kinds of other health problems but have not prescribed something for the pain...Help I am miserable.

    Imitrex (the max daily).
    Imitrex is a MIGRAINE rx. That hasn't helped your headache?
    You need to notify the doctor immediatly of that fact!!!!

    Maybe you need to see a Neurologist that specializes in headaches/migraines or a doctor that specializes in sinus problems.

    PS: I can't get over Imitrex isn't working for your "headaches" when it works for "migraines".
