Pain after sinus surgery

I had 2 sinus surgeries, the first to open my left sinus and reduce my turbinates on both sides and to fix a deviated septum.  The second surgery was to remove excess scarring that was causing pain.  Since these operations I have had severe headaches behind my left eye and above my jaw (in the sinus cavity area).  I sometimes have blurred vision out of the left eye and it feels like there is pressure in there.  The last surgery was in May of 07.  Is it normal to still be having all this pain.  I have had numerous CT scans, 2 MRI's 1 MRA and they can't find anything wrong.  My ENT says it's my teeth, my dentist says it's my sinuses.  I am still having sinus infections and just recently had a double ear infection that has taken 2 rounds of antibiotics and is still not gone.  I have tried all the Migraine avenues, pain management, acupuncture, chiropractors, neurofeedback, injections, etc. the list goes on and on with no relief.
Could the ENT damaged a nerve or or some how gotten too deep and into the brain.  If so, how do I get it diagnosed and get it fixed.
Any help would be greatly apprediated.

Dear Migrainehell,

Because I don’t specialize in sinus surgery or treating chronic pain, it is hard for me to answer your questions.  My best advice would be to work with your doctors on these issues or possibly seek a second opinion.

Best of luck,

Dr. Nassif
