As a chronic migraine sufferer, I know that headaches, especially of undetermined origin, are the worst! For a long period of time, up until a couple of years ago, I too had a headache all the time, every single day of my life. It is truly a miserable existance. What you didn't put in your post was any information about
any type of pain medication you might be taking for your headache. Are you taking anything prescribed or over-the-counter on a daily or periodic basic for pain? Are there any medications that you take on a daily basis? It's really hard to get a complete picture of what you're dealing with without all the information. Dealing with "headaches" and "sinus" issues is very tricky because the pain can be located in the same physical
location but be coming from two distinctly different causes.
Having dealt with my migraines for thirty-seven years, since I was eight-years-old, I've seen just about
all the research on every kind of headache and treatment that exists. I'm also pretty well versed in sinus-related issues. If you want to list off what you've given a try or what you are currently taking, I might be able to give you some insight.
I have to see one of those every two to three weeks at the local walk-in clinic. I have a bad back, so I can't sleep more than a couple of hours at a time without severe back pain. So, if I get a bad migraine, I have to get a shot of Phenergan(which knocks me out) and Nubain(a mild narcotic) to relieve my BACK PAIN long enough for me to sleep several hours. The problem with the DR is that he thinks that I'm taking the narcotic for the "migraine," which isn't the case, but he has yet to give me enough time to explain my history to him. When I come in, he doesn't even examine me, and he's walked out on me while I was talking to him more than once. He just asks me if my headache is the same, writes up the order for the shot and rubber-stamps me like I'm not even a person. He thinks I'm just a "drug seeker", which is just stupid, cuz let me tell you, a shot of Nubain would be NEVER BE worth putting up with his crap for without the PHENERGAN, which NOBODY would ever accuse me of seeking. I swear I'd get him fired if I thought I could do it.
I'm feelin' ya Girlfriend!

I have edited a sentence in your post Leigh Ann. Due to this being a public forum we never know the ages of individuals reading here and we need to be careful with our language. Thanks.
