I get the worst migraines in my jaw nostril and eye on the right side. It hurts in my forehead. The pupil has been dilated more than the left side for about a year. It hurts when I walk and breath. I want to shoot myself at times. My teeth and gums hurt my cheek bones everything on the right side.

Does anyone here have this??

I am not a doctor, however, sound like what I have.

A typical Face Pain with TMJ or Trigemial Neuralgia. Can be treated with meds.

find a good neurologist at a major hospital that will know about these diagnosis and make an appointment as soon as possible.

Stay away from cold drinks, warm is the best. Put a scarf over your face when you go out. Concouscily relax your jaw and face muscules constantly.

Best of luck

Hi there!

I get migraines in my sinuses all the time, and I tend to find that those are my worse migraines. They are so bad that I sometimes have to scream! At first, I thought I was insane because none of my doctors could see anything wrong with my sinuses. I saw all sorts of specialists and had test and imagining done on my sinuses. No one could find anything wrong! Finally, I brought up the extreme sinus pain when I was seeing a specialist at the Diamond Headache clinic and she said that I was experiencing migraines there and it was just another aspect to my headache. (I have daily chronic headaches with migraines, TMJ, and neck pain as well). I find that when the sinus migraine is getting really bad, I use my rescue medication (I use Sumavel Dose Pro or Zomig Nasal spray), and that usually helps. If it doesn’t it, than it means a trip to the ER for me. (Wahoo)!

I would suggest seeing your headache specialist. Please let me know if you have any questions and good luck to you. I hope that you find something that works for you!

Take Care!

I get A typical migraines in my face too. Also add TMJ to it and the pain can be unbearable. Then add, OA and fibromyalgia and my life is just all pain. It can really get you down, living with chronic pain is difficult. But you have to try and push through it to have your good days.
