Daily headaches can be frustrating and cumbersome; they occur due to many reasons. Use of medications like Ibuprofen and triptans on a frequent basis can cause headaches. Family history of headaches also predisposes a person to headaches. Other factors involved include stress, physical trauma, sleep disorders, and previous history of headaches. Swelling is probably a separate issue; consult pcp.

Headaches have many causes, which may be difficult to diagnose for some patients. Brow lift surgery can contribute to discomfort early after surgery, but uncommon years afterward. One potential treatment is Botox cosmetic in-between the eyes and forehead to help relax the facial muscles. We can only speculate without a comprehensive office evaluation.

The answer is complicated. You certainly need to be under the care of a neurologist to rule out the usual causes and cures for ha. However, it might be interesting to know if Botox or even nerve block help with your pain.

A deviated nasal septum (the cartilages and bones) is one of the most common--and undiagnosed--causes of headaches. The crooked bone and cartilage presses against the side walls of the nose (turbinates) and triggers a headache. Correcting the deformity often totally relieves--or minimizes the frequency and severity of the headache.Have some one who specializes in nose surgery examine your nose.
