headaches & hormones

My husband has been having a severe debilitating headache for 5-1/2 years straight - they never go away.  Other problems:  TMJ for grinding teeth - sleeps with a mouth piece from the dentist.  Sleep apnea - uses a CPAP. Corpal Tunnel. Low Testosterone level - takes injections every 2 weeks.  Low WBC.  High Growth Hormone.  IGF-1 tested twice - 1 time high, 1 time normal.  Excessive sweating for no reason at all - can just be sitting down watching TV.  Ring size has increased.  
No medication helps the headache go away.  We need answers - he's miserable.  Any suggestions on the next test he should take?

You can get his blood pressure checked to rule out hypertension.
Excessive sweating or heat intolerance can occur if there is a thyroid problem.
Also i think he needs to undergo complete cardiovascular examination, so please consult a physician at earliest.

Hello.  Maybe he should get his kidneys checked as he's having edema in his hands.  I'm not a doctor, but I know that's one of the signs of kidney disease or disorder.  Make sure they test his creatinine, both in his blood and in his urine.  This is the only suggestion I have so far for you.  Sorry I'm not much of a help.
