I've had migraines for a few years now; spent a lot of time and money trying to figure it out, to no avail.
Some people at work had been urging me to go see an ENT, on the off chance that there was something with my sinuses triggering the migraines. So I made an appointment for this last Monday with a Dr someone had suggested.
So after something like 10-15m of answering screening questions about my history, the Dr grabs some sort of scope/camera and looks into my nose. Asks the nurse if she saw what he was seeing, she said yes, and then he pulled the scope out and sat back. Total time of looking up my schnozz was maybe 15-20 seconds, tops. He tells me that I have a deviated septum on one side (this being the side that I had told him I've never been able to breathe through)
He tells me that he's seen a few people with headaches/migraines before, that had bone spurs in their sinuses. So he wanted me give me a quick scan (CT I think, they had a miniature one in their office) to see if there was something there.
The scan was super quick. Waited maybe 5m, then the Dr comes backs and tells me that sure enough, I have some sort of bone spur behind the eye where my migraines seem to start. And apparently there's also a sinus cavity that sits next to the eye (?) that was inflamed (something medical lingo)
He wouldn't tell me that this would fix the migraine, but he did say that he thought the odds were good that one of the issues, or a combination of them, were probably the root cause of the migraines. So I think I'll be able to get surgery in a month or so, and hopefully the migraine bullshit goes away.
