Hello my friend
I will offer you my story which may or may not help your condition.
Last spring I suffered a severe headache for over 3 months that I thought was a sinus infection, went to the doctor who prescribed a series of tests
including EEG, MRI, MRA, bloodwork and head x-rays as he didn't believe the sinuses were the problem at all. The restults of all of the tests were
negative. No diagnosis was made yet the headache persisted.
Coincidentally, I kept a previously made dental appointment (cleaning) after all the medical tests had been conducted.
The dentist took one look inside my mouth and asked me if I suffered from sinus pain. I was shocked and asked how he knew. He said it was obvious
and that his father had the same swelling and redness inside his mouth (back of the throat) as mine. But he also asked me if I was aware that I grind
my teeth. I told him I didn't think so, to which he informed me that from the "wear" on my molars it was clear to him that I do grind my teeth,
So, he chiseled down a couple of spots on a few molars and trimmed back the bridge I have on my front upper teeth to allow my lower jaw to rest
The headache disappeared within an hour and hasn't been back.
Go to your dentist. He will more than likely find out what is wrong and fix it.
