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.

Hello, I am having trouble with...I get headaches from the seasonal allergies, the one thing I ve found that prevents those headaches from going into migraines is Excedrin migraine. I have Mitral valve prolapse & cannot take decongestants. I have taken the Excedrin for years with great success. Last summer I began taking magnesium and I starting breaking out in hives. I stopped the mag. & started it again, every now & then I still break out. I stopped the mag. again. I m concerned about the Excedrin but feel I have no other option. Can I all of a sudden have an allergy to Excedrin after all these years? Also, how long does it take for the magnesium to be out of my body?

hi im 29 after suffering a miscarriage i started to experience what felt like severe fatigue tested bloods slightly under the norm range for Vitamin b12 def so now have the 12 weekely jabs. i then had what doc said was a migraine aura could not see out of left eye this lasted 6 hours and returned back to norm however still had partial vision seemed blurred spoke to doc who recommended a sight test which came back norm. then after the aura i have been having on and off episodes where my i feel light headed, left side of body feels numb and heavy and and also the side of my mouth which at times i have slurred speech, i have had MRI which revealed nothing on migraine/tumours or lesions just a Tornwald cyst in my nose which they say has nothing to do with symptoms. both my mother and gran have MS and this was ruled out from MRI. consulant can not find anything wrong so is suggesting i have Hemiplegic Migraine and has prescribed Topiramate my doc does not think that migraine is the cause but has gave me tablets anyway. this is all happening once a week roughly i have bad days and good days no headache is ever present. doc says i have GAD now but i suppose anyone would if they didn t know what was wrong with them and feeling unable to function normally for a year do you think i should see a ENT cons? could it be caused from the cyst i do suffer with sinus problems and currently have Eustachian ear dysfuntion which drives me crazy!
