Is it normal for a Sinus infection/headache/Migraine to get worse by thinking?

It has been 1 constant 24/7 head pain. It is extremely irratating and gets really bad when thinking. Any suggestions to what it is?

Symptoms listed in levels of significance:
Localized pain in the sinuses(mainly center forehead) that emits shots of pain to surrounding areas which has been 24/7 for 1 ½ months
Thinking makes it worse
Stiff neck
Pain in teeth sometimes

What I don’t have:
no nasal drip
no stress
no discomfort behind eyes
no sensitivity to light or sound
No drippy or congested nose

Never had migraines or headaches prior to contracting MRSA. It was cured but the head pain still lingered. 19, Male, physically active.

I think personally that it is a sinus infection which is causing migraines and thus the best course of action is to see a ENT doctor and not perform an expensive CT scan. Suggestions?

  • I know your solution, thank me later, my email is miltonluban@hotmail.com Trust me forget the ENT's I have tried them too many times as I once suffered the same as you are.Your problem is 100% allergies. Forget your Primary care DR, and your ENT. Go to a allergist! If you live in the New York area I have a great one, get tested to see if your allergic to anything, but in the mean time try a decongestion, over the counter, twice a day, and a sinus rinse, it uses saline water wash, twice a day, and get yourself over to the allergist ASAP. That's your solution! SO many people suffer from what you are! and they go to there primary Dr, the ENT and no one goes to the right DR which in this case is the allegist! So get going and see a good one!!!! It's always the last thing to do after they have suffered for so much time!Oh, lets also not rule out TMJ cause you say you have a stiff neck? But not sure on the TMJ ??
