Oh and it is related to anxiety topic because a lot of people said that it is linked to stress/depression (the burning head).
But I highly doubt it as it is in one spot ALL the time and worsens when I BREATH through my nose how can that be stress related?? :( Also my only worry nowadays is this strange headache!
HI everyone. My tooth is ok now but I still have the same pain :(
I can not live with this much longer it makes me crazy :(
It may be a sinusitis or inflammation of the sinus. Try taking Benadryl (an antihistamine).
Hello, I am going to be blunt. I have been in the medical field for almost 25 years. You NEED an MRI, asap. You need to DEMAND one. If your medical insurance offers "patient care assistance" use it! The term I just used may be called something else according to your carrier. Call the number on the back of your card for assistance, no need to tell the first person you speak with about your medical complaints. Ask to speak to someone in the correct department, which is normally an RN. Under the program the nurse will step in and ADVOCATE for you, and attempt to help you manage your care TOGETHER. If you don't get a positive response (there are plenty of medical personnel who just DO NOT have good "bedside manners" or are working for the money and not to actually care about patient outcomes.) Developing, on both your part and the nurse's, a good rapport would be wonderful, trust is key. If you have a psychiatrist that you work with they may also agree to give you an order for the MRI. However, in the event that you receive the order it will have to be preauthorized by your insurance in order for them to pay for it. The ordering doctor (usually their staff) are responsible to obtain this authorization for you. You can also contact your care advocate to discuss, where you go from here.
In the event that your symptoms are completely out control/unbearable, go to the ER! You should receive a FULL workup, including laboratory testing and you will most likely be given in at least a CT while you are there. Give the MD your medical history, it helps for you to type it out and keep it with you. I am unable to recall whether or not I have read on a threat somewhere that you have experienced seizures, or any sort of head trauma, whether resent of in the past. Do not forget family history, specifically cancer/tumors.
As your own advocate go to your insurance provider's website and research for your self what is covered and/or what is needed to be successful at obtaining the preauthorization. Don't forget to research their program regarding the patient care assistance. Another issue you should consider is a change of providers. You know your own body, you sense when something is just not right. You deserve answers and a proper and thorough examination and treatment plan. You can also research your medications. Look for possible side effects due to possible interactions between two or more medications. They may not be compatible or may even cancel out one or both. For example; taking Dilantin and birth control pills, will result in the Dilantin making the birth control ineffective. This is a fact.
I wish you all of the best, and hope that you are successful and experience relief (first and foremost) and are blessed with caring, compassion, and empathetic providers.
Hi there. I'm so sorry for your suffering. I have worked in the dental field for many years and have come across patients that have severe pain and think it is a tooth problem. I met a patient who had 6 root canals and two extractions to try to relieve the pain. He then went to a Neurologist and was told all looked fine. He found a support group and learned of a condition called Trigeminal neuralgia. He found a different Neurologist that specialized in this condition ( I believe in San Antonio, TX). The doctor did extensive testing and he did indeed have TN. He had surgery and immediately had relief of the unbearable pain he was in. I just wanted to share this as this poor man had unnecessary dental treatment from dentists who never should've performed them.
