I have a sudden pain in the back left side of my head when I lean forward or when suddenly make any head movement. The pain appears suddenly and for only some seconds. I always had a problem of sinus during cold my cheeks will pain a lot. So is this pain in the back of head also due to sinusitis?

Some symptoms depend on which sinus is inflamed. For example: Frontal sinusitis (behind the forehead) can cause pain in the forehead and pain that gets worse when lying on your back. Sphenoid sinusitis (behind the eyes) can cause earaches, neck/cheek pain or headache at the top of the head or deep behind the forehead. Let's have a detailed discussion to ensure proper treatment.
