Thanks for this interesting question. Based on the information that you have provided, it is possible that the cause of your symptoms has nothing to do with your nose or sinuses at all. Many people will go to an ear nose and throat surgeon
(AKA ENT AKA otolaryngologist
head and neck surgeon) who will attempt to treat them for sinus problems with no real success. This can go on for some time in some instances, which will often eventually prompt the surgeon to consider other causes. This will often happen before or after other treatable causes of your pain have been treated and not led to a resolution of your symptoms. One of the more common causes of this sort of headache and facial pain is actually something that stems from your brain. In many instances, this is a sign of atypical migraines, which will often present with some of the signs of a normal migraine (nausea, light sensitivity, and inability to function at full potential), and many patients will have a history of migraines either themselves or in the family. Because there are so many potential causes of this complaint, some of which are serious, you need to keep speaking with your doctor
. Please discuss this question with him or her.
