I have pain in skull it feels like sharp needles sticking in it. I have severe pain in my right ear and jaw.I have sinus drainage and when I am on strong antibiotics the pain gets better. I was misdiagnosed with Trigemnal neuralgia.I have seen about 20 different specialists but none have been able to help.I have tried gabapentin and other medicines ,but nothing seems to help. I had surgery for a deviated septum and that helped a little with the sinus infection.
I also have AV malformations and fibromyalgia.

  • Did you ask if you have shingles? I had scalp pain for 8 days no sign of lesions,rash, or red bumps. Pain was so bad, I wanted to be sedated because I couldn't find anyway to relieve it. Finally, next day I called my PCP AND diagnosed me with shingles. Red bumps did start showing up. Sometimes it takes awhile to diagnose shingles because there is no signs. Getting better now that I'm on meds to treat it. So sorry to here that this has been unresolved for you. Try a infectious specialist.
