Chronic ear pain, migrane(migraine) and sinus pressure
*Major Problem- Eair Pain
I have severe ear pain in both ears. Ears feel like they have a lot of built up pressure, feels achy like they are going to pop, get ocassional ringing in both ears, ocassional sharp shooting shockwave pain primarly in right ear, have to put tissue in ears everyday b/c too much air getting in my ears makes it ache. Both ears are very sensitive to high pitched sounds and loud base.
Secondary Problems-Tension in temples and Sinus Pressure
Very tense pressure in temples on both sides of head. When rubbed can feel the spot that is tight and applied pressure on spot causes pain, ocassional sharp shooting pain in back of head (probably triggered from diary products)
Strong sinus pressure around nose and eyes.
Primary care physician said possible trigeminal neuralgia. Prescribed Gabapentin, Oxcarbazephine, Sumatriptan. Medications enhanced symptoms and had discomforting side effects, no longer taking these meds. Saw ENT who prescribed Amitriptyline, med only helps with going to sleep, still taking this med.
Had MRI w/o contrast that showed no problem. Saw ENT that found no problems from looking in my ear and nose. Over counter meds have been more successful in alleviating symptoms with no known side effects. Inflammortary pain medicine, sinus pressure and congestion medicine works the best. However have to take almost everyday to cope.
Other Pain/Medical History
Had previous auto accidents that resulted in disc buldges on neck and spine. Frequently have neck stiffness, knots in my back that are painful when rubbed,and aches in my elboes especially when weather is rainy. Had no major surgery aside from a hammertoe surgery 6 years ago
Symptoms have been ongoing for past 2 1/2 years. From reading my info could this be trigeminal neuralgia or atypical trigeminal neuralgia, acute sinusitis, tinnitus, TMJ? Other than MRI are there any other procedures and scans that can be done to get a better look at my sinuses and internal ear. Can wisdom teeth cause these symptoms? My dentist recommends I extract all 4 wisdom tooth, can these extractions cause my symptom to increase.?
