ADisdainForMigraine: Migraine? How do you know? I'll just assume you have severe headaches for now. And you can develop "overflow" symptoms from them (e.g. stiff neck, tight muscles that squeeze the nerves in the back of your head, nausea, insomnia, etc etc etc). If the usual over-the-counter medications haven't helped or just help for a while, you need to see a doc. A month is a long time to suffer like that. ...Read more

Yes: Pain around eyes or deep eye pain during a cold are usually signs of sinusitis. Have your general doctor order ct scan of sinuses and if sinusitis present he can then refer you to an ENT specialist. Remember regular x-rays are of no help in diagnosis of chronic sinusitus. ...Read more

Possibly: Have you seen a neurologist? An MRI is in many ways a more sensitive test than a cat scan, but still would only reveal the cause of your headaches if it is structurally identifiable. The causes of headaches most of the time are not structural (like a tumor) and these include migraine, tension, cluster, and headaches related to stress, hypertension, and medications, etc will not show up on MRI. ...Read more
