Differences between headaches and sinus headaches.

Headaches literally mean aches in the head. Headaches can be caused by several different conditions. The common causes of headaches include poor vision, eye-strain, dental problems, neck problems, digestive problems and importantly sinus problems.

Unfortunately many people use a pain killer that kills the pain rather than address the underlying problem. Have your eyes checked to exclude poor vision, see a chiropractor if it is coming from your neck and see your dentist if it coming from your teeth.

If your headaches are due to sinus complaints SinusWars can help. Read further to see if you may be experiencing a sinus headache.

Do I have a Sinus Headache?

Does your head feel congested, feel very heavy and do you have a throbbing headache?

Do you feel pressure around your eyes, cheeks and forehead? If you have the above symptoms you are more than likely suffering from a sinus headache.

A sinus headache occurs when the sinuses and nasal passages become inflamed and congested, leading to a headache. The sinuses are the bony, air-filled cavities in the head that connect to the nose through small openings. When you get a cold, sinus infection or have an "allergy attack" these openings become blocked by excess mucus and may become infected. This infected mucus causes congestion, pressure and headaches. Alternately these sinus cavity openings may swell and block, creating a vacuum effect in the sinus cavity causing the mucus membrane within the cavities to be tugged away from the underlying tissue, hence the resultant pain.

Headaches are one of the key symptoms of patients diagnosed with acute or chronic sinusitis. In addition to headaches, sinusitis patients often complain of:

  • Pain and pressure around the eyes, across the cheeks and the forehead
  • Achy feeling in the upper teeth
  • Fever and chills
  • Facial swelling
  • Nasal stuffiness
  • Cough
  • Fatigue
  • Yellow or green discharge

It is also important to note that there are some cases of headaches related to chronic sinusitis without other upper respiratory symptoms. This suggests that an examination for sinusitis must be considered when treatment for a migraine or other headache disorder is unsuccessful.

In the fall when there is cooler and dryer weather, environmental triggers such as mold and pollen, perfume, cigarette smoke and viral infections will cause an increase in the frequency and severity of sinusitis and sinus headaches. Sinusitis and Sinus Headaches can be treated.

Not every headache is the consequence of sinus; it could be due to a migraine or a tension headache. Pain in the sinus area does not necessarily mean that you have a sinus disorder.

What causes a Sinus Headache?

Colds, allergies and sinus infections are the usual causes of a sinus headache, which occurs because your sinuses become congested due to the swelling of the sinus membranes lining.

A sinus headache occurs when air and mucus is trapped in the obstructed sinuses. Pain and discomfort often occurs under the eye and in the upper teeth (and can be mis-diagnosed as a headache or a toothache).

A sinus headache often gets worse as you bend forward or lie down. The key to relieving the symptoms of a sinus headache is to reduce the swelling, inflammation and facilitate mucus drainage from the sinuses.

What are other types of headaches?

Other types of headaches include -

  • Vascular headaches, which include migraine.
  • Muscle contraction headache, caused by tightening or tension of neck and facial pain.
  • Traction headache which may result from disorders such as strokes.

Self-help measures

Here are some other things you can do at home to lessen the effects and pain of sinus headache:

  • Drinking plenty of fluids to thin the secretions and keep them flowing.
  • Take hot showers to loosen the mucus.
  • Alternate hot and cold compresses- place the hot compress across your sinuses for 3 minutes, then the cold compress for 30 second.
  • Nasal irrigation - using a neti-pot or saline sprays has tremendous benefits

When to see your doctor

You should consult your doctors for headache symptoms that last for an extended period of time, and do not improve when taking our or any other remedies. Sinus headaches that persist for more than a week or are accompanied by fever may be caused by a bacterial infection that requires treatment with antibiotics, which can only be obtained with a doctor's prescription.

Some people experience headaches unrelated to sinusitis, which could actually be:

  • Tension headaches, caused by muscle contraction
  • Migraines, usually intense, which may be throbbing, pounding or felt more on one side of the head
  • Cluster headaches, rare headaches that occur in "clusters", relatively short in duration, but cause tremendous pain.

Your doctor will know the difference, and can recommend appropriate treatment. Chiropractors, osteopaths and acupuncturist effectively treat headaches; consider consulting with these professionals to manage your headaches.
