Hi can anyone else around my age (45 yrs) give me some advice on medication, MRI, Surgery etc for this condition. I have only had it for 2 weeks, but seemingly I am on the maximum dose of everything and starting to get the same symptoms in my left side. I have had to call the doc a few times in the night for medication advice to control the pain and have 4 weeks to wait till I see a Specialist. Also, do any of you have problems with the lining of your nose. Mine has got thicker and drier and is driving me nuts but not as bad as the pains in my back teeth and head. I struggle to eat and drink.
