Headache, Migraines, Sinus Conditions Answer A2307
Sinus inflammations, or sinusitis, are a type of upper respiratory infection. One symptoms of sinusitis is headache. But the pain during sinusitis, however, is constant, and doesn’t come and go in attacks. Further, during sinus inflammations, the pain is not located only on one side of the head but is located in the frontal head area and always followed by other symptoms which can include nasal congestion, mucous discharge in the nose and throat, and temperature. Headaches during sinusitis can also radiate to the eyes and upper teeth.
A migraine is a headache usually located on one side of the head. Migraines come and goe in attacks. A migraine headache is followed by nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light.
You can visit an ENT-specialist to confirm or exclude sinusitis. If sinusitis is confirmed, treatment of that condition should also cure the headache. If you don’t have sinus inflammation (sinusitis), a migraine could be one of the possible reasons for the headaches.
