What's the Link Between Sinuses and Headaches?

What's the Link Between Sinuses and Headaches?

Link Between Sinuses and Headaches

Suffering from splitting headaches? The remedy to it can only be found once the cause behind it is identified. Everything from migraines to stomach infections can be the cause of your headaches. But it is not impossible to tell the difference between the different aches. You have to notice the other symptoms that accompany your headache to understand what is causing the pain.

Symptoms of sinus headaches

When you have the following problems along with your headache you can be sure it is being caused by your sinus:

- Pain in the head, face and nose
- Pain in the eyes
- Stuffy or blocked nose along with the pain
- Accompanying nasal allergies and bouts of sneezing
- Inability to smell

Understanding sinuses

The sinuses comprise of a rather sizable cavity present behind your cheekbones, bridge of your nose and forehead. Generally, the fluid in the region gets drained through the nose. But due to infection, allergic reactions and tumors the cavity can get blocked and also get inflamed. The inflammation is caused by an increase in mucus production, which can lead to the nasal cavity being blocked. The blockage stops the fluids from draining and the sinuses get even more inflamed. When the cavity gets inflamed it starts pressuring the cheekbones, nose bridge and forehead and eyes.

Why does it ache?

The building up of the pressure on the cheekbones, nose bridge and forehead causes the area to start hurting. Thus, when one has a headache originating from inflamed sinuses, the pain is not just isolated to the forehead. The pain in the nose is a sure shot sign that the headache is caused by the inflammation of the sinuses.


Not just another chronic ache

Most people mistake any chronic headache as a sinus problem. But mostly such aches are caused by migraines and stress. If you have a prolonged headache as well as fever you are sure to have a sinus ache instead of any other chronic headache.

Make it better

Once you have identified the headache as a sinus ache you can start the treatment. Steam inhalation helps clear the sinuses, reducing the pain almost immediately. If steam inhalation does not help, you might have a severe sinus infection. In such cases, it is best to visit a doctor to understand the extent of the infection. The doctor is likely to prescribe antibiotics for the remedy of the infection. Even if you are aware of what medicines to take for sinus infections it is best to get checked by a medical professional before you start popping pills since the headache might just be due to some other causes as well.

I have a nobe in my throat Which get swollen whenever I go in dust. Why is it so?

I have a nobe in my throat Which get swollen whenever I go in dust.
Why is it so?
Hi, dust contains bacteria settled on it and whenever we are exposed to it, we get throat infection. Nodes act as defense mechanism in our body, so whenever there is invasion of bacteria through nose or mouth they get swelled to fight back and remain swelled till infection is cured completely. Take medicines aralia race 30 4pills to be sucked thrice a day for 30 days kali bich 200 4pills to be sucked thrice a day for 15 days take plain water steam once a day avoid eating curd, icecreams, pickles, papad, citrus fruits, watermelon, green skin bananas, pineapple, strawberries, custard apple, guavas. Stop using mosquito repellants and old house dust.

My one nose remains always blocked either left or right all the time. Is it a defect or something else.

My one nose remains always blocked either left or right all the time. Is it a defect or something else.
Hello lybrate-user, the nose should not remain blocked. Our natural pathway for breathing is through nose only and when we breath through mouth then the functions of nose like humidification, cleaning of air, removing bacterias and dust particles all get disturbed. As far as your problem is concerned a simple nasal endoscopy can detect your problem and the treatment can be started. Nasal blockage is a symptom only and a disease in itself.

I am 58 year old. I am suffering from sinusitis and I am able to feel that water is blocked in my front and back head. I took head steam bath but no relief. I don't know what to do. What shall I do?

There may be associated nasal polyps in nose or blocked sinus drainage pathway that is causing you this problem. Get a xray done of nose and sinus to rule out any underlying pathology. Review with report.
