this is my first time posting here . Sooo I am two weeks over a month long sinus infection and a week over an ear infection.

I took antibiotics and used ear drops, but I can’t seem to get rid of the headache around my temple and the top of my head. I’ve been abusing google with my symptoms and I guess I’m looking for some reassurance if there is any.

When I get a sinus infection my head hurts forever after, especially when lying down. It’s always right in the front of my head at the very top. This has been happening to me for years. I had an MRI two years ago and definitely did not have a tumor. I actually have a sinus infection now with a headache right in the forehead area.

Is your nose stuffed up still? Could be causing pressure on your temples. Plus make sure to get lots of liquids that always helps me when I have a headache.

I’m still getting post nasal drip, but no congestion. I’m so exhausted over worrying about this

Residual pain from infections can last months. I had very mild diverticulitis a couple years ago and had some abdominal pain for 6 months after it was cleared up. Many times the antibiotics used to treat these infections can cause as much havoc as the infection itself. Just remember that tissue was inflamed and angry for a month. Think of the astronomical odds that you would have a brain tumor that just coincidentally showed up after a month long sinus and ear infection.....you're fine.
