Expert:  Dr. David replied 26 days ago.

most likely not due to lyme disease.

you could have a food allergy or bacterial sinus infection causing headaches.

do you have sinus congestion? have you tried a course of antibiotics for a sinus infection?

Customer: replied 26 days ago.
had antibiotics and x ray for sinus hard to live a normal life with these headaches
Expert:  Dr. David replied 26 days ago.

a sinus CT scan is better to look at the sinuses.

a sinus CT scan or MRI scan is not a sinus xray.

Customer: replied 26 days ago.
sorry. had ct scan for sinus not xray had meds shots you name it . next step allergy doc please give me your best answer. nobody seems to know after all these years
Expert:  Dr. David replied 26 days ago.

that seems like a pretty tall order

to give you a diagnosis. without being able to review your medical history

without being able to examine you.

I don't know if you are a man or woman.

I don't know if you had a brain MRI scan with contrast in a close MRI scanner.

you haven't had a neck MRI scan.

I don't know what you eat.

you still have allergy testing to have.
