forward 2 days later, burning pain steady and now in roof of mouth and left upper teeth.
In the ER I recieved pain meds (no effect), normal blood work up and MRI/MRA scans (no contrast) all results negative. additionally I went to the ER at U of M 2 days later as the pain continued. recieved normal blood work up, pain meds (no effect) neurological exam. and am additional 2 part CT scan.. results negative. now an appointment to see a neurologist.
forward 3 days, the neurologist discussed my pain wich was still primarily in my left sinus / left roof of mouth area. also some pressure and sensativity in left cheek and nose. she scheduled me an appointment for a pain clinic (in december) unacceptable! there supposedly that busy.she ordered a CT with contrast to be sure there were not any masses on tumors on any nerver she said. her inital diagnosis atypical face pain.
I have since scheduled an additional ENT appointment as my left sinus constantly burned like theres acid in my head pain scaly from 1-10 usually 9-10 never under an 8-9. I have also noticed my symptoms are increasing, I have pain in the left sinus when breathing in talking or swallowing. I have a moderate headache on the same side and when I touch my head I can feel it all the way to my sinus/affected area. my sinus actually feels fairly clear and I can breathe well.
I just today looked inside my left nostril and it's blood red and has flaky skin area, like dead skin, I rubbed it and It started to bleed. my nose is numb and hurts at the same time.
the pain is 24/7 I am having serious difficulties at my work as well as daily life. the pain never stops and is severe, I feel it even when I walk or when driving from road bumps. It's almost impossible to sleep as well, im so tired all the time.
sorry to be long winded but I wanted to be as descriptive and accurate as possible.
Thanks for any input
