I have had sharp, burning pain on top left part of head, ear popping and fullness, eye pain, nose pressure (no congestion) and pressure and headaches for months now. I've had MRI, MRV and a CT. No one can help me. I'm in need of help. Its making me so upset. I also have neck pain and tension...ALL LEFT SIDED.

I also have jaw popping (may grind teeth) and horrid reflux. Is this related? On allergy meds and ceftin...doc hasn't helped me. Ive lost 15 lbs. Since I've been sick. All blood work great...could this even be anxiety? I've thought maybe neuralgia, tension, anxiety, heart burn headaches, migraines, TMJ???? I need answers.

Hello and welcome to eHealth forum!

Two main things need to be ruled out. One is TMJ and the other is temporal arteritis (diagnosed by a high ESR). Apart from it this can also be due to acid reflux. Take Omeprazole empty stomach in morning and an antacid gel at bedtime. Refrain from smoking, alcohol, fuzzy drinks and spicy food.

Bruxism or clenching and grinding teeth during sleep, dental infection, and ear infection could also be a cause. Please consult an ENT specialist and a dentist regarding this as a confirmed diagnosis is not possible on net. Hope this helps. Take care!
