Hi there. These headaches could be due to stress, anxiety, migraines or tension headaches, sinus headaches radiating to the ear, headache usually front of head, on one or both the sides of temples along with nausea, vomiting, irritability, low blood pressure, sensitivity to lights, sound, etc. aura associated with migraines could include blind spots, blindness in half of your visual field, paresthesia, weakness or visual hallucinations. Your vision needs detailed testing by an ophthalmologist. Hypertension and hypotension need to be checked. An MRI brain is warranted to rule out any intracranial lesion particularly aneurysm and MRI spine for ruling out cervical spondylosis and degenerative disc disease. Temporal tendinitis mimics migraines including TMJ pain temporal headaches, tooth sensitivity, neck and shoulder pain. Treatment includes injecting local anesthetics and other medicines, moist heat muscle relaxants and NSAIDs along with physiotherapy. Multiple sclerosis would also need to be excluded. Treatment for migraines include drugs that prevent the attack like anti convulsants and drugs which treat an attack like triptans, ergots etc your queries should pertain to all these possible differential diagnoses. Trigeminal neuralgia needs to be considered. Hope this helps. Take care.
Pressure at temoral for over a month. Left side only. One doc declared temporal pain and gave tramadol/acetaminophen and also pregnisone 10mg. Pressure became excruciating pain afterwards and my ear, teeth, and even jaw would catch hell. Also the top of my head would pound. Esp at night, there would be no rest. Its like night offset it. Finally an ER visit declared severe sinusitis with infection meds and hydrocodine. Still, I was in pain. What is going on? Even my eyes hurt and became really sensitive at those crucial attacks
