Migraine Headaches Vs Sinus Headaches.

Hi, I am new here and wanted to post a question for you all. As far as I know, I have never had a migraine headache, but I keep having a lot of sinus headaches. My husband told me that he had heard on the radio that when people have a lot of headaches, and they think it is sinus headaches, that it's really migraine headaches....Just not the real bad ones that make you sick etc... Is this true? If so, what kind of medicine can I take for them? My Dr. Had put me on allegra at one time, and I thought that it was helping....But then I started having the headaches again even while I was taking it, so I stopped cause it wasn't helping me. What do you all think about this?

Sound like my problem, your sinus headaches are turning into migraine headaches. I didnt know that until my doctor told me. Every sinus headache I get turns into migrains. I take maxalt and it works great.
