Hey all,
I have been having the worst headaches. I went into the dentist for a rootcanal & cleaning. I thought that I had another tooth that was causing me problems do to facial pain & awful headaches. Ended up that the other teeth were fine but my sinus cavity has kind of fallen into the root area of my upper teeth. The dentist asked if I have ever had anything like this show before on an xray, & I replied no, she stated maybe the sinus area was really inflammed. Yet I have really not had alot of problems with my sinuses.

I am having the worst headaches, one sided like I migraine. Worse when laying down & goes into the eye, jaw & teeth area, ear, even down deep in my throat, sharp intense pain going right into my left temple, down the back of my head to the base of my neck.
I was wondering if anyone else has anything like this & if the herniated discs could be causing any of this. The pain is awful & this is occuring more & more.
I was wondering if the cervical could cause this type of headache or could it interfer with sinuses. This is strange. For any of you that suffer headaches could you describe the headache for me please. I appreciate any responses.
Thanks & god bless, Sammy
Even though I had a preexisting issue with migraines, I'm convinced that the migraines I often experience are related to my neck, because I can always tell when they're going to hit. It starts with a pain at the base of my neck (and severe tightening in my neck) and the pain spreads from my neck to the back of my head TOWARDS the front. I never experienced migraines like this before, prior to the issues with my neck, the pain started in the front of my head.

Of course I still get they typical migraine symptoms - severe nausea, aura, visual disturbances and pain so bad that about all I can do is lay in my bed until it passes (of course I also take Zomig which really does help speed up relief). I have also found that applying ice to my neck helps as well.

I definitely see a link between headaches and neck issues.

I hope you get answers and relief soon. :angel:

Fiona, I have had migraines in the past for years & then they stopped.
This headache is so like a migraine that perhaps the cervical is bringing this on but in another way. It starts at the neck or base of the head & with in minutes is a full blown headache. I called my sister today who had them in the past & ended up with the cervical surgery but hers was the first 2 discs. She did tell me hers caused the same kind of pain as I am experiancing with the jaw, ear, teeth up to the eye & temple. I was pretty worried that perhaps something else was wrong & I would go through this surgery then discover there are other problems. As this is different then the other headaches I have had with me neck. Those went up the back of the head & were just as painful to a point but did not effect my jaw & teeth so much. It confused me since I was just at the dentist & had a root canal done I thought it was something else like my TMJ. My sister said everything hurt on her, much like mine. They put me on steroids & have me wearing the neck brace to see if it will calm it down. I still have the pain but it has yet to flare up as bad as the other night. I am scared as this is pain the goes beyond anything I can endure. Behind my ear & temple are really painful. This is just so bizzare & hard to figure out when it involves everything. Even the left side of my nose hurts, they even thought maybe the sinuses were involved. Crazy. I am praying the steroids will get me through. I so appreciate everyone shariing as I am have been so worried. Who would have thought a couple discs could involve so very much. God bless & take care, Sammy
