Hi, I'm a 37 year old female with recent onset headaches. I've had a constant headache for one month...waking to sleep...nothing is seeming to curb the pain. Located mainly behind eyes. The headache varies in intensity daily. Some days it is a dull ache, other days stronger. Not noticing much throbbing or sharp pains. Some inausea and some loose stools. Not sure if this is from anxiety (I have a hx ibs) or what.
Also, my teeth are starting to feel sensitive within the past week or so.

Dr. Treated for sinus infection...no luck. At this point feels they are tension related and prescribed muscle relaxant (skeleton) to take before bed. So far does not seem very effective.

I am feeling kind of lost. Not sure what to do next. I have an appointment with a chiropractor tomorrow and acupunture today. I went to dentist last week and he will fit me for a splint if night clenching is the issue.

Any suggestions? When is it appropriate to seek help from specialist? I kind of feel like physician is not taking pain seriously. And as a note, I tend to prefer natural therapies rather than medicine.

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum.

Well, the mouth form will help if it is from teeth grinding.

I have trigeminal neuralgia, but that pain is not between the eyes.
Interesting. However, it does effect the jaw line and make your teeth hurt. So can TMJ.

I did accupuncture for 3 years with great relief of my pain. Had to stop due to other illness and going disability.

I think you will find meditation, mindfulness and accup. a good combination to use for relief. Give it some time and be diligent with the meditation and mindfulness.

Peace
