Although my pain was lessened, I still had bad flares that would come and
go. Also, if I didnt take all my meds the pain would come back. So my
quest to get rid of all my pain continured.
Long story short: I ended up having something called Sluders neuralgia
(contact point headache). I had to have sinus surgery and that cured it.
and I am happy to report I am now pain free and off all my meds.
Unfortunately, I had to figure all this out for myself. None of my doctors
could, they just wanted to keep throwing pills at me. I read about contact
point headaches and I went to my ENT to ask him to check my sinuses to see
if that could be the problem. He looked into my nose and said "everything
looks good!". I asked for a CT scan, just to be sure. When the CT scan
came back, he could then see the contact point deep within my sinus. I had
surgery to correct it (septoplasty, turbinate reduction, maxillary
antrostomy and septal spur removal). I am now pain free and thank the Lord
all the time. Best wishes to you.
