I don't think i've got it...yet...but i thought i better check... This year I have been suffering from what i originally thought was tooth ache, then ear ache then sinusitis, then cluster headaches or some other headache that is similar to migraines. It appears that the nerves in my face have gone haywire, specifically the trigeminal nerve....but none of my pains appear to fit any one condition exactly. I have a dull ache in the side of my head pretty much all day every day, around my temple...and then just for fun i get episodes of excruciating pain that can last a second or 5-15 minutes. Pain that makes me cry and sob, pain that makes me want to whack my head against something, pain that makes me worry that if these episodes don't stop soon I am going to end up losing my job. I noticed the pain really getting bad in February and it has gotten worse and worse and more often as the year has passed. The dentist declares it can't be my teeth and I don't appear to have any jaw or clenching, bruxing of teeth problems. My sinus has been scanned and all looks good, I have had a CT scan looking for a pituitary tumour and nothing showed there either, I just got an MRI done yesterday...have no official word on it yet, but I won't be surprised if it is clear too. I have yet to be prescribed any pain killer that can completely rid me of the pain, I am going to a naturopath today. Anyway, just wanted to check and make sure that noone has ever seen such symptoms in a dementia case before (being as my Dad has an early onset dementia that is more often than not hereditary - I am concerned a little). P.S. If people have been wondering why I am hardly on here these days, this is part of the reason...even my poor dad is not getting as many visits from me, as most afternoons when i finish work I am in agony.
