Hello Wendy,

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

i always feel bunged up , had a bad ear infection which was thught to be the cause also had nose sprays and decongestants,

Expert:  Ken replied 4 years ago.
Wendy I assume no investigations were obtained.

Headache can be due to varied causes - Intracranial abnormality {inflammation, infection or some mass}/ migraine, anxiety, stress, less sleep/ raised blood pressure, low blood sugar/ referred pain from cervical spine, ear, eye or sinuses.

In your case with no associated symptoms like seizures, weakness at any part of the body - I would think of referred pain as my first bet. It can be due to some infection focus in your middle ear or sinuses.

Having repeated headache worries me and needs further evaluation. Few investigations like CT Brain, x ray for sinuses and temporal bone {middle ear}/ throat swab should give us more answers.

Till than - Motrin, warm water gargles, steam inhalation should give relief. Have balanced diet, adequate fluid/ avoid alcohol, smoking/ stay away from stress {Yoga, meditation help}/ have quality sleep.

Wish you well.
