In brief: Mastoid infection

Hello, you have had many imaging studies including MRI and a ct scan of your head.
I didn't see any report of fluid in your mastoid portion of your temporal bones so i wouldn't suspect this infection is present. An acute mastoid infection would also most likely be accompanied with an acute middle ear infection. Looking at your history, i would suspect that you may benefit from a psych doctor.
