Headaches affect almost everyone and its causes are just as varied. The sinus is often labelled the culprit even though migraines and tension headaches are quite as common.
How do I tell if I have a sinus headache?
Sinus headaches are generally associated with a deep and constant pain in the cheekbones, forehead or nose bridge. Sudden head movements usually intensify the pain. Sinus headaches are also accompanied by other sinus symptoms, which may include nasal discharge, fever and facial swelling.
Do allergies lead to sinus headaches?
This is a misconception, probably due to the fact that allergies can cause nasal congestion, which in turn may lead to headache pains. But otherwise, allergies are not a direct cause of sinus headaches.
