Approximately one month ago, just as I was drifting off to sleep I began to have sharp pains in the left side of my head just above the temple.( I know what a migraine is and this is not one. I had severe migraines from 12 yrs old until 54 years old.) This pain in my head got worse until it seemed unbearable.I still have the headpain. Pain medication helps some for awhile,but nothing makes it go away completely.I am also dizzy. The two doctors that I have seen seem to think that it has something to do with sllergies or is a migraine of some kind.I went for my regular dental checkup and the dentist discovered a cracked wisdom tooth that will have to be removed or have a crown. It is the bottom tooth on the same side as the head pain. There is also pain in my neck and ear on the same side. Has anyone had anything like this? I have Sjogren’s, temporal lobe epilepsy and several other illnesses..Could it be the tooth causing this? The dentist told me that the nerve for that tooth is extensive. I am going to have the work done on Friday. The headpain was so severe when it began that I thought that I was having some sort of event. Any ideas or similar headaches?
