PLease help me decide my next step. I have had extreme headaches since June of 2007, everyday, no exaggeration. My doctor (neurologist) ordered an MRI. The results came back as described:
Single 10mm area of mucosal thickening or cyst formation on the left side of the septum of the sphenoid sinus.
Is this serious? Could this be the cause of my headaches? pLEASE HELP ME. There are no medications that work to take my pain away, which by the way is a frontal headache.

  • Can you get a second opinion- perhaps from a neurosurgeon? It sounds like if your headaches are frontal and there's a cyst in one of your sphenoid sinuses, that they are related somehow. Best Wishes.

  • Tanya, you should definatly get a second opinion. If you have a cyst in your sinus I bet that is why you are having headaches. It is taking up space and messing up the pressure in your head. But I definatly wouldnt ignore it
