Sinus & Midfacial Pain

Pain over the forehead, around and between the eyes we typically attribute to the sinuses. In reality only about 10-15% will be due to true sinus related problems.

Sinus & Midfacial Pain Diagnosis

An assessment of the inside of the nose with an endoscope and possibly the use of a CT scan will help to further clarify this. If the sinuses are clear, we would then consider other causes of facial pain. Occasionally there may be dental related causes for this.

Your specialist may also consider referring you on to a neurologist once all other causes have been excluded. This process of elimination is important and maybe what is required to determine the underlying cause.
