Hello: For over three years i've had this problem. Also not ringing but the sound of a dentist drill in my head. I've had most everything done to find out why. The pain would increase and decrease, so would the sound. Oct. of 2008 i had nasal bone spurs removed. I was 80% better.There was still the same problem but with a lot less pain.Then around feb.16th., it started again. I live with ice packs. My ent doctor has me on neurontin. I'ts different than all the others i've been on but no help. I dont have any side affects , such as light or sound , vomiting or what ever. Am i an alien or does anyone else been down this road ?.

Sort of same symptoms
I am a 17 year old male with left hand side pains which follow the nerves down which made me think trigeminal neuralgia but when the treatment wasn't working i was told that it could be a zygomatic break, cluster headaches, migranes... none of the diagnosis were correct.

other syptoms i have are, weak body and fatal left knee. which comes to the diagnosis of B-27, which is a genetic mutation which happened at birth, its passed down through genes and can take different forms such as, one-side face and knee pain, back pain, or sometimes found to be miss-diagnosed as IBS
ALTHOUGH this is a HIGHLY RARE diagnosis. As my family have all the problems above its likely that it will be the correct diagnosis.
