Since June of last year, I have suddenly started getting an explosion of pain in the exact same spot in my forehead, right above my left eyebrow. The pain is almost always there, every day, but it worsens when I bend over, sneeze, cough, or strain. It will ease or go away when I take ibuprophen or if I apply counter-pressure or a cold compress, but it always returns and it gets worse when I cough, bend over, etc.

I have seen 4 doctors, including 3 specialists: an allergist, an ENT, and a neurologist. I have had a CAT scan, but it only showed some blockage on my right frontal sinuses, so I am getting an MRI on Friday.

Anyone else experienced these symptoms? If so, what was the diagnosis? I am so sick of dealing with this pain. Come this June, it will 12 months that I've had this pain, every day.

Thank you.:(
