Disc problem in neck and back, developed pain in eyebrows and shoulders. Diagnosed with bulging and herniated disc. Is it related to sinus problem?

Hello,I have disc problems in my neck and back and I have developed a bad pain that goes from my eyebrow through my molar and down into my neck by my shoulder . I was diagnosed with bulging and herniated discs in my back and neck due to a car accident 9 years ago. Could this be related to that or a sinus problem? I suffer from year long allergies. Thanks for your help

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. Allergies can be controlled with medications and avoiding the allergen. Despite this, it seems like the disc problem is what is causing you to have problems near your eyebrow and molar. If you did have a sinus infection it would show on a simple X-ray of your PNS(paranasal sinuses) or an MRI PNS view. You will benefit from visiting with a neurosurgeon who can help deal with the herniated discs in your back and neck.

I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
