I've had migraine for years. I'm currently battling with chronic sinusitis (which started following a mild cold last summer) and haven't got better having tried home remedies and medication prescribed by GP. I saw GP again yesterday and mentioned that last week when I had a migraine my eye went watery and my nose blocked on one side - this happens sometimes if I have a migraine, and it is quite different to the sinus problems.
So she then suggested, based on this, that I might be suffering from cluster headaches. But I don't think I am. From what I've read, the pain and duration of cluster headaches don't match my symptoms. I've also been on the OUCH website and done their self-diagnosis test and it came up with "migraine" as a diagnosis! I definitely get auras as well so I am pretty certain it's not cluster headache.
The upshot is that I've refused to see a neurologist as she suggested, (I think I need an ENT specialist to look up my nose!) and I've got to increase my atenolol to see if it helps the migraines (confused? I am!) And I still have sinusitis!
I think I will see how it goes for a bit and then go back, armed with another migraine diary. Any ideas?
