I developed facial pain over a year ago. I have Allergic Rhinitis and Chronic Sinusitis with a history of three Sinus surgeries. I was also having drainge. My big proble was that I would begin with pain in the eyes, nose, and cheeks, and it would feel like someone had hit me with a bat across the face.
I tried to ignore it, but eventually I would end up with Migrain Pain on the right side. I saw my ENT Doctor numerous times. I was so sure it was Sinusitis. But he keep saying No. And then I began to take the Fioricet when the facial pain began and it helped. I tried Extra Strength Tylenol, Advil (which I'm not allowed to have). I would take 800mgs of that with no relief. I used Afrin Sinus Spray, Saline Spray. Nothing helped but the Fioricet.
I have yet to be told it is a Migraine, but have read that with fibromyalgia (which I have) you can get facial pain. And I was thinking maybe it was causing this pain and triggering the Migraine. I can't think of anything else it can be. It's very frustrating, and I get the facial pain everyday. I take more Fioricet than I ever did before, so that is frustrating also. Yet no doctor has been helpful.
