Dermatomal?: Although I agree with the previous answers would also add "shingles" to the possibilities. It can give pain around the rib areas on one side and may or may not be directly associated with a rash. Can be quite painful but there are treatments available. Important to see your doctor to help determine the next step for treatment and work up. ...Read more

I had a root canal last summer. Now that tooth is causing pain. It hurts to breathe air in through my mouth, eat from that side, or drink. I thought since the roots were gone, it could not hurt. What could be wrong?

Root canal: Even tho there is no nerve in the tooth depending on how many canals were found when the root canal was done there can still be a extra canal, fracture, decay under the crown, tooth got re-infected or a different tooth in the same area that can all be possible reasons why you my still be having pain. ...Read more

Had a sinus infection for a week. Sinuses hurt but I can breath through my nose now. Still can't taste or smell anything though. Will they return?

Had a sinus infection for a week. Sinuses hurt but I can breath through my nose now. Still can't taste or smell anything though. Will they return?

Smell Gone - Back?: The sense of smell often worsens after anything that causes stuffy nose -- a head cold, allergy flare up, or a severe irritant like smoke ingestion.

The sense of smell should improve when your nose returns to baseline congestion. If it has not, suspect a viral infection such as influenza or parainfluenza. Go see an ENT to have your nose examined and get treatment. ...Read more

Not: Not enough information without an exam to fully answer your question. What do you mean that your sinuses are "free"? Do you have nasal congestion? Did you have an injury to your nose? Are your eyes involved in any way?

There are multiple sinuses in your skull, above the nose and eyes, below the eyes, and between the eyes. They all drain into the nose. Any one or more of these sinuses can be affected with either sinusitis or an infection leading to pain and tenderness to touch.

This could also be a skin infection.

I recommend that you schedule an appointment with your physician for evaluation. ...Read more

I have IIH. Leaning forward when liquid suddenly came from right nostril. The back/right side of head and ear hurts. Can't breath through R. nostril.

I have IIH. Leaning forward when liquid suddenly came from right nostril. The back/right side of head and ear hurts. Can't breath through R. nostril.

Unsure: What caused the liquid you describe. Have you been told you have an encephalocele in addition to IIH? If not, it does not seem plausible for the liquid to be CSF. You may have a sinus infection, ear infection and or mastoiditis causing your pain. While it is probably unrelated to IIH, you should be checked as mastoid pain suggests a more serious infection. (back right side of head). ...Read more
