Headache, dizzy, Mastoid Air Cell
Have been experiencing constant supra-orbital pain on the right side with occasional dizzines/disorientation. Had CT, showed nothing wrong with sinuses. Had MRI, brain shows normal. However, report states the following Note: is made of decreased aeration in the right mastoid air cells with a small amount of retained secretions present.
What does that mean and could it be a contributing cause to the headaches/dizziness???
