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.

My very healthy 15 yr old daughter suffered a mild concussion after hitting her head on the floor during a basketball game. She still has a headache 5 days later. Is it safe for her to get her wisdom teeth pulled 3 days from now? (1 week post concussion?)

Hello,
I am a 38 yo white heathly attractive male who masturbates at least twice a day or more. I am not promiscuous, not as in my younger days...now I just watch internet porn or think about it. I Love sex and have since I can remember back to five years old playing with girls. I expected the intesity to lessen with age, but I have come to find out it is not and I am more and more beginning to embrace my nature as it seems this is how I am wired. Will the fire ever subside?

Am querying current line of thinking by several consultants. Admitted to hospital May 2011; lumbar puncture showed elevated CSF protein of 1088 mg/L with 228 white cells, 95% lymphocytes. The working diagnosis was viral meningitis, and I was discharged after 2 days aciclovir. Negative for herpes simplex virus 1 and 2. Developed infection in leg early October 2011, followed by painful groin, then ulcers either side of scrotum - non painful, and diagnosed as shingles. Mid October 2011, following tinitus, buzzing , hearing different frequencies, then vertigo, admitted for 2 weeks in ID ward...CSF showed 614 white cells with 90% lymphocytosis. CSF protein raised at 1335 mg/L. Tested for everything under the sun, incl. HIV, syphillis, Lyme disease, Cat scratch fever (leg infection thought to have been through an insect bite). All negative, incl. ANA. Chest x-ray, MRI scan of brain and whole spine also negative. Admitted again 26th December 2011, aciclovir for seven days, now back home feeling well, if a little tired. Current thought is Mollarets meningitis, but more recently, rheumatology dept. thinking Behcets syndrome, as I suffer from mouth ulcers. My contention is this; I have sufferd from mouth ulcers since a teenager taking exams at school. If I have a job interview, I will get mouth ulcers after @ 48 hours. Dentist thinks stress induced, as do I. I have no aching joints and no eye irritation, also, just found out that HLAB51 negative. I am a 42 year old British male and caucasian. I can t help feeling there s a square peg being pushed into a round hole here. What about migraine; the tinitus, buzzing and vertigo? Also, I took a non-steroidal (Ibuprofen) prior to the first two episodes. Bickerstaff s encephalitis sounds just as plausible as Behcets...or am I in denial? I would appreciate any advice, even if it s to simply face the music . Thank you for your time.
