Have you tried Massage Therapy? Specifically a medical therapist who specializes in trigger point therapy.

I am 28 and suffered from chronic headaches my whole life until I went to school for massage and had repeated sessions of trigger point therapy on my neck and jaw.

It's far more effective than anything else I've tried including analgesics and chiropractors.

Good luck.

Tension Headache, Migraine.
Has the neurologist/ENT specialist ruled out the possibilities of a migraine problem? Have you been to a psychiatrist? This could be a tension headache or a symptom of depression. Are you mentally fine otherwise? Do you face symptoms like lack of sleep/sleeping too much and still not feeling fresh, fatigue, loss of apetite/too much apetite, feeling sad all the time (not just because of the headache but for matters that concern your personal life)? Did you ever get hurt badly by anything in your forehead?

Something more.
My ENT doctor told me sometimes (very rare) the CT Scan is unable to catch an infection of the sphenoid (by the way, there are four pair of sinuses, maxillary,frontal,ethmoid, and sphenoid) sinus. He told me that he himself has handled a few such cases where the CT scan showed absolutely nothing but when the endoscope was inserted through the patient's nose, surprise! surprise!!, there was pus in the sphenoid sinus!!! When an ENT surgeon performs FESS (Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery) he inserts an endoscope through the nose. With the help of the endoscope, he can view the conditions of the sinuses. I am not sure if the endoscope can be used at other times (other than during surgery). Ask your doctors (especially ENT) about this. Good Luck!

I am a 24 yeard old male from Canberra Australia who has had a persistant headache in forehead since November 2005. I have tried a whole range of tablets, massages etc..etc..etc...etc..etc, spent over $10,000 and these bullsh*t doctors have showed little interest in helping. I had Sinus surgery (had hemirage a week later which may have undid what doctors had done). The headache has never changed, it is very much same as the first post from India. Has anyone had any answers?

Migraine Headaches, Forehead pain
I am a 57 yr old woman from California. Had persistent headache (between eyes and in nose) for 5 yrs along with chronic migraines. Have gone through All the treatments of Everyone who has posted before me. Now I am about to have a procedure called a sphenopalantine nerve block done at Stanford Pain Clinic. They did a Trial block using Large q-tips w/lidocaine up my nostril to see if it would help. (of course, it was a surgical procedure and I was sedated) I was OUT OF PAIN for about 24 hours, after the procedure. So now I am willing for them 2 do a more aggressive longer acting procedure. Great full to be near Stanford Doctors.

I am in as worse a situation as everyone else....all i will add for now is that i am seeing a headache specialist who advised me not to take persocet or any pain pills. as even in a very small dose they can lead to headaches. so...as i was taking a very small amount as a crutch, now i must endure more pain until someone can tell me what is going on.

I have the same problem, and i had been given nortriptyline in small doses at first (10 mg), then 25, then 50. The neurologist should know how to increase the dosage for you, but it worked after a month or so of taking them. I was migrane free for about 3 years, but they have returned. i may have to make a visit to the doctor to see about these headaches again, and possibly get some more nortriptyline.

also, something else you may consider is Atypical trigeminal neuralgia (ATN). a good way to test this, is if you pres certain points along these nerve (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trigeminal_n erve) and your headache seems to go away for a few seconds. then this may be what you have.
