Suffering from constant headache. My wisdom teeth have cut through just recently

Hi! I have had a constant headache for several months now. It is literally always there, night and day. I have taken excedrine migraine and ibuprofen and asprin free tylenol . I have tried just about everything to make it go away, and it just won t. I have noticed that a couple of my wisdom teeth have cut through just recently, but I don t have any pain whatsoever inside of my mouth. My dentist gave me a z-pak just to prevent infection, and he wants me to get them removed, but I can t afford it...even with insurance. Do you think my headache is caused by my teeth or could it be something else that I need to get checked out by my physician? Like I said, I have had constant, never ending headache for probably about 5 months now. HELP!

hello,
Constant, never-ending headache indicates that there is some thing grossly wrong... i will advice you to go for a second opinion to some other dentist so that you can rule out dental cause for it... if there is no dental cause then better arrange a visit to a neurophysician...
take care.

hello,

you can take an OPG which shows all the wisdom tooth position and whether it is infected. if not the pain is due to tooth decay then dont delay visit a neurologist. take care!

I have had a constant headache all day everyday for over two years now and my vision is getting worse. My head only hurts on my left temple and around my ear and in my left jaw. Also both of my top wisdom teeth are broken off, I was wondering if this could be the reason why I have had a constant headache? I feel drained everyday and dont want to do anything but sleep and i have a loss of appetite , I have to make myself eat.

A 54-year-old Type-A male business executive had been experiencing migrainelike headaches. One afternoon he also experienced light-headedness, slurred speech and mildly impaired motor function on his right side. One of his colleagues rushed him to the emergency room of a nearby hospital where blood pressure, blood gases, electrolytes, and an ECG were run. His blood pressure was 195/100 mm Hg, which he said was typical of what he had experienced during the past two years. Blood gases and electrolytes were normal. The ECG showed no arrhythmias but did demonstrate a left axis deviation. The gentleman was admitted to the hospital and a cerebral angiogram was performed which showed left cerebral hemorrhaging. 1. What is the diagnosis of this individual s disorder?2. What are the major contributing factors to this disorder?3. What could have been done to prevent this problem?4. What are the early warning symptoms prior to the complication?5. Why did the ECG show a left axis deviation?6. Why was there impaired motor function on the right side from cerebral hemorrhaging on the left side?

I had an MRI which showed stable microvascular ischemia white matter changes without demylinization. I am a 34 year old, 284 lb woman with a hx of migraines with aura. The MRI was done because the aura prior to a migraine changed from the electrical current type to seeing tracers. For the past few months I have had chronic headaches, not just the hormonal migraines I typically see. I take Fioricet for my headaches because nothing else has seemed to work. I do not have high blood pressure or cholesterol issues despite being morbidly obese. I do not have pre-diabetes or other blood sugar issues. My mother has a hx of TIA s, diagnosed when she was 40. I am still waiting for a neuro appt because the neurologist wants to review all of my medical files before setting the appointment. 1. How does the radiologist know the changes are stable when I have never had these show up on an MRI before? 2. Could this be migraine related as opposed to TIA s? 3. What can I do to prevent the changes from becoming chronic?
