Constant dull pain in forehead area, varied diagnosis of tension headache, chronic sinusitis. Help?

Hi, I have constant dull pain in the forehead area which is prevalant in the eyebrow area and in the middle of the forehead. Some days are better than others. I have arthritis in my neck but not sure that is causing my headaches. Went to neurologist and he says it might be tension headaches. Went to see two different ENTs, one was treating me for chronic sinititus and the other stated that my headache was not coming from my sinus area. I am confused. Can you help

Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
Its difficult to predict the cause of headache with out examining you. Still considering the nature of headache, it could most probably be a tension headache. Tab Amitriptyline is an efffective drug for tension headache and should help if it is a tension headache.
Aslo check your visual acuity.
