Thank you for your answer. My dentist said I did not have TMJ but sometimes I have really bad jaw and headache after singing or chewing on bread. The MRI was done without the contrast but an ENT consultant surgeon said there were no 'nasties' there or neuroma. Nobody looked at my nose yet. I had this for 12 weeks now. The cricket sound came soon after my lower and upper wisdom teeth were removed, in Feb although I am not sure the two can be connected. I went to an urgent care centre yesterday they told me it can be neurology related or anxiety induced. What is trigeminal neuralgia? Should I repeat the MRI on the head? Can they see the orbit space on the MRI? Can it be cancer in the nose? Thank you
That is reassuring that its not cancer. I am really struggling and really worried what could be wrong with me. I tend to be very anxious but these headaches are driving it as they are so scary. The electric feeling in the head is frightening but they temporary. The headaches are squeezy paired by the nose pain is unbearable. My temples and behind my eyes and nose are the worst. I do not have discharge or runny stuffy nose though or a cold, but I did notice that I have what they call an occasional post nasal drip but not bad. I don't have temperature either. I have had the MRI done without the contrast in one of the Best London private hospitals in the Wellington. Do you think it is important to repeat? Can I talk to you on the phone and how much does it cost ?
If it is a sinus infection, can they diagnose if its is viral or bacterial? How serious can a sinus infection be? I had facial sinus infection before and it was very obvious and easy to treat. I also notices that I have neckpain when I move my head to the left and a temp vertigo sometimes when I pull it back this could be unrelated though. Do you think it is dangerous? I am taking pain killers only but can get antibiotics if you think I should take them. It probably would be easier to talk on the phone do you know how much does that service cost? Thank you for your help I really appreciate it.
when I am anxious I normally have chest pain and I head a panic attack a few times, but I recognise the symptoms now and learned to control them. I am worried I have some disease that or serious illness that is being missed somehow. The phone offer keeps popping up but I didn't tick it as I didn't know if it relates to the same doctor.
What if I have a skull based sinus ? The ENT surgeon said my sinuses were clear on the MRI but does the MRI show skull based sinuses?
The trigonomal nerve problem is it dangerous? Is it treatable? I will have a look at your phone offer now. many thanks
Thank you doctor I really appreciate your help. how is trigemnial neuralgia diagnosed? Should I have blood test done today? You mentioned that you worried that it might be a sinus infection, Can it be if I dont have runny nose, cold just the headache cheek bone and nose pain? Also the headache is not only effect one area but seems to move around but mostly temple forehead and top of the head, occasionally in the back of the head.
Do you think I have a serious or dangerous problem?
Thank you for all your help. I will look into all you suggested. How serious can anxiety symptoms be to manifest physical symptoms like mine?
I really hope it is stress/ or anxiety related and I really hope I don't have some sinister disease behind the scenes.
My last question is can Tinnitus relate to vascular or artery problems and would that have been picked up on my general routine MRI of the brain without contrast?
Thank you Dr. David you have been a tremendous help to me today and very reassuring too. I will definitely would and will recommend your online services to anyone who needs medical help or answers or just reassurance for their peace of mind. I am sorry I didn't get to talk to you on the phone but I had to go and to see my on-call Gp who said very similar things and she gave me appt. straight after your last answer.
Once again thank you and I will be in touch if I need any other help in the future.
Please keep up the great work, we need doctors like you.
Many many thanks I will do my feedback right now.
