I am hoping that perhaps someone out there in this vast world found a solution to this issue and can share it with me and the rest of the people that suffer from this disorder.

I moved from Austin, Texas to Houston, Texas last year on March 8th, 2015. I had been to Houston several times prior to my move and stayed up to a week. On March 10th, I randomly developed this dull pressure headache around the sides of my head, pressure pain on my face as well as the top of my head. There was no on-set and this headache hasn't left me for almost a year now. I literally suffer from it 24/7. It's a little "lighter" in the mornings but gradually gets worse as the day goes on.

Doctors that I've seen and still no correct diagnosis yet: neurologist, 2 ENT specialists, general practitioner, chiropractor, dentist, acupuncturist, and endocrinologist.

Tests ran and came back clean: MRI, CT Scan, Blood Work (although somewhat low Vitamin D but not too bad), X-rays on spine, Hormone Levels, basic allergy panel (cats, dust mites only)

Medicines I've taken but no relief: Seroquel, Pristiq, blood pressure pills, all OTC pain relief pills (tylenol, ibuprofen, excedrin), flonase, saline

Things I've tried to cut out see how it affects me but none have helped: caffeine, alcohol, birth control pills, aspartame products

Procedures done: Turbinectomy, Ballon Sinuplasty, Wisdom Teeth (all 4) extraction

If anyone can give me an option or an idea of what I can try next - please do tell me. I am desperate for a solution. I try to keep my spirits up, but I have my breakdown moments - inevitably. I still try to go to both my jobs and tough through each day. Anyway, this is not a sob story - I am just seeking for help! Anything helps, thank you!

I believe you may have some type of Neuralgia.

I would make an appointment with a Neurologist that know about trigeminal neuralgia and migraine pain. Also A typical face pain.

You can search on the web. There is a national site for A typical Face pain and they have a list of doc. Your insurance may have a list also.

Call local major hospitals and ask for the neurology or headache center.

Peace and strength
