Headaches Without A Name

Posted by Gem @gemmax, May 8, 2018

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?

@jewel8888

Sounds like it is related. i am very sorry it hurts so bad. My teeth are in terrible shape, the ones remaining. I rember a back molar caused similar headache when I was young and received a crown. It went right away, so am hopeful yours will. It's hard on me, I have several that need to come out but money is tight. Is your toorh and nerve hurting?

@jewel8888 Unbelievably, the awful pain came back today…except it is not really in that tooth, although that tooth aches some.it is excruiating pain in my entire face, my neck the left side of my head. I have to say,I was feeling quite desparate most of the day as nothing helped.I made an appointment with my pain doc,and my eye doc but. they are early next week. Finally, about an hour ago, i put my large frozen mud pack (those blue soft ones) on my lower back and a smaller one on my eyes after taking my pain dose. and here i am able to comunicate again. It is a bit easier finally. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Gem

I agree with Gail. When I had my heart attack, I did not even know I had it. I felt sick to my stomach but that was it. Please be safe and get checked out. Not worth messing around with, and best to be checked out.

Actually it was your post asking her if she had any other pain in her left side that triggered my concern about the possibility of her having heart problems Thanks, Gail, Volunteer Mentor

I wish you well. I am not aware of what you are taking for pain. If you already shared this, I am sorry. When you get time tomorrow, please share with me if you can.

@lioness Thank you for your suggestions. I have an eye appt Monday and wednesday an appointment with the Pain doc. I have neurologlist that i see from time to time and the pain doc can get me in faster than i can, so I’m going to let him handle that and scedule a scan. The ENT that I had been sent too did not help at all.He said I didn't have an infection..then last night woke up in the middle of the night coughing up what i will call green/brown slime. I think it came from my sinuses draining post nasal. Anyway, now I can't get my anti-bio refilled until Monday..The drugstore is closed on the weekend here.If I have a sinus infection,it i dandy.

@gemmax. Your welcome friend, anytime. I was really concerned about headaches from taking isonizid antibiotic for latent tb infection. I've had a few very minor ones and my stomach has started to tolerate it. Not eating for three hours in the middle of the day and unable to tske methotrexate is getting to me. Im stsrting to whine.

I cannot tolerate methotrexate. Others RA patience swear by the drug. Not me. Pill form I become I'll and cannot tolerate food. Injection , I am feeling like I have the flu.
