Suggest treatment for sinus headaches and ear infection
MRI scan is a better investigation for this.
Thanks for posting your query.
Arthritis of TM joint can cause a headache. It can also happen due to age related degenerative changes in the cervical spine. The best way to diagnose all these problems is by getting an MRI scan done. It will help in detecting the extent of arthritic changes.
The main treatment in such cases is pain killers, local hot compress, calcium and vitamin D 3 supplements.
Consulting a neurologist will also help in a better diagnosis.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.

I forgot to mention the third DR ENT Dr. gave me Flunisolide Nasal Spray. This is the one who did the frontal XRays. Lately it seems to make the pain worst. Like someone it trying to pull out my sinuses.
Dentist will not help.
Thanks for writing again.
The front X-ray is done to see the sinuses. Hazy sinuses suggest an infection. Lateral view is needed to assess TM joint properly. If it is due to TM joint then do take a mild pain killer and do a hot compress in the area. A dentist is not likely to help in this issue much. It is better to consult an orthopedician.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
Needs proper investigations.
Since the pain was severe and needed opiates to control, other causes of headache like migraine and proper investigations like MRI scan are needed to pin point the diagnosis. It is best to consult a neurologist for a proper evaluation.
