    Wife's Headache
    osucbsb posted:
    My wife has daily headaches. It really flares up when she is outside or in an area with a lot of dust. No pain medications seem to help. We live in a very dry climate. She has had nasal surgery to fix the problem, it didn't work. Her CT scan was clear. Her headaches are normally right over her eyes and when real bad will cause her eyelids to swell. She has also been diagnosed with very dry eyes. Any suggestions on treatments or type of doctor to visit would be great. Thanks

    Hi Osucbsb, I would recommend that you also visti an optometrist, because it seems like her eyes are also affected. If her eyes are constantly dry, her eyes might not be getting enough oxygen, and there might be a way to treat that. Keep us posted and take care, Cassie.
