Question: For the past 8 months I've had headaches, head pressure, tinnitus and neck pain. MRI's from April 2015 and a second MRI from September 2015 show left mastoid inflammatory change and left sphenoid mucosal thickening. Could this be causing my symptoms? Also could an infection have spread?

Brief Answer:
In my opinion , sinusitis & left mastoiditis is cause for your symtoms .

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for the query.

I have read your query and understand your concern.

After reading your clinical history & MRI report , it appears that you are most probably having sinusitis with left mastoiditis .
In my opinion , sinusitis & left mastoiditis is cause for your symtoms .

If I were your treating Doctor for this case , I would advice
Steam Inhalation twice daily,
Saline nasal spray or rinse thrice daily ,
Paracetamol for headache with neck pain &
Antihistaminic tab like Tab Claritin at night .

You will get relief .

Investigation like CT Scan Nose with Sinuses needed to know spread of infection in sinuses .

Hope this information helpful to you .If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.

Regards.
