Coping with Sinus Headaches

By Richard Romando

A sinus headache, if caused by the sinuses, is more of a face ache than a true headache. The sinus passages are located under many areas of skin on the face. An infection of the sinuses may cause them to swell and therefore become painful. The sinus infection may be followed by a headache and should be treated properly.

Allergies and Sinus Headaches

Allergies and sinus infections may have similar symptoms; however, the headache is treated separately. Allergies may appear with a headache, while the Sinus headaches will often cause a fever, as the body fights the infection that is causing the sinuses swollen.

The Sinus Headache Could be a Migraine

Much debated though it is believed that 90% of self diagnosed sinus headaches are actually migraines; the issue is a hot topic of discussion amongst professionals in the medical community. Some doctors believe that the patients may not have had migraines but a Sino-nasal disease. Sino-nasal disease is a chronic condition of inflamed nasal and sinus passages that can currently only be corrected by surgery.

To the believers of the migraine theory, there has been a significant improvement in patients who began migraine treatments after proper diagnosis. It is always advisable to go for proper diagnosis before funneling to a treatment.

The doctor who preformed the study had diagnosed 90% with migraines. The patients were also sent to three other doctors, an ENT and two general practitioners. Of each of these doctors, less than 10% of the same patients were diagnosed with migraines. The best idea, who suspects sinus infection, is to consult a doctor to aver any serious consequences.

Treating a Sinus Headache

The treatment for sinus headache would also treat the other associated symptoms effectively. Decongestants and antihistamines can bring relief stuffy noses, watery eyes, and sore throats. Additionally, getting plenty of fluids, clearing nasal passages frequently, and staying well rested can also help to alleviate the discomfort associated with a sinus headache. If the headache persists, consult a doctor.
