cant take it

I have been having headaches for 6months now. It started with a sinus infection. i took antibitics for that but the headache stayed. I have had 2 ct scans done which were both negative. The pain is mostly on one side of my head and I get dizzy and feel faint and have the shakes at times. The pain is in my temple area and my left ear now feels full. They keep saying it may be my sinuses and put me on meclizine for the dizzness. But my headaches dont go away. It feels like a constant but dull pain. I dnt think its migraines i dont have those symtoms. Please help me, I believe they are misdianosing me.

get a referal to an ent doctor, sounds like an internal auditory canal issue.  do you get ringing in your ears? thats tinnitis. what cts did you have done,  most likely brain. if you havent had iacs ct or mri, your ent will order it. it could be related to your sinus inf 6 mos ago.

I had similar thing.  I had inner ear infection and was treated with antibiotics, but headache remained.  I had MRIs and nothing showed up.  Went to chiropractor and had an adjustment.  I am now headache free.
