I have had constant pressure in my head and face since July of this year. It is everyday from when I wake up to when I go to bed making life very difficult. I first went to a neurologist, then it was thought that I had a bad sinus infection. While on Augmentin and prednisone, the pain improved but then leveled off with no continuing improvement. After seeing an ENT, he determined, based on my two MRIs and sinus CT, that there wasn't anything he could do and therefore referred me back to neurology which I don't see until November 28th.
I have no family history of migraines, am a male in my 50s, no nausea or sensitivity to light, and no previous history of headaches or migraines which, I believe are some of the main indicators of a migraine.
I started having the headaches after taking a peptide therapy nasal spray to help with osteoarthritis (self prescribed and not FDA approved). I had pain in my right nostril after taking the spray for approximately a month and immediately stopped the spray. I was treated for a sinus infection, but the pain then moved to the right side of my forehead. Prednisone seems to be the only thing that will make me feel somewhat normal.
I am not convinced that this is a never ending migraine but a problem, I unfortunately created myself due to the nasal spray, with my sinuses.
I would appreciate any help/advice anyone can give to steer me in the right direction to get the appropriate treatment so I can get back to a somewhat normal life.
