Migraine?: Although recurrent headaches are the mainstay of migraine, a migraine is not just simply a headache. Rather, it should be viewed as an attack that is accompanied by various neurological and non-neurological features as well as headache. Any headache must be viewed as a valid medical disorder and the headache assessment must be comprehensive. Rec. See a headache or orofacial pain specialist.

Diagnosis first: Diagnosis before treatment. See ENT doc for exam/xrays. You may have sinusitis, TMJ, or other problems. If sinusitis, ENT doc will treat, if TMJ, he/she may refer to orofacial pain-TMJ doc.
