Symptoms of sinusitis or migraine headaches can be similar to sinus headaches, which can be confusing about what is causing your sinus pain or pressure. Not every headache is a result of sinus or nose problems. Many patients visit an ENT doctor thinking they have a sinus headache, then find out it is a mirgraine or tension headache.
Sinus headaches tend to worsen as you bend forward or lie down. The key to reducing symptoms is to reduce the sinus swelling and inflammation.
During your consultation Dr. Weiss will evaluate your severity of symptoms, go over your medical history, and do a physical exam. If you have repeated or chronic sinus pain or pressure Dr. Weiss may do a nasal endoscopy (to see inside your nose and sinuses) or do an in office CT scan to determine if your symptoms are due to your sinuses.

Patients who suffer from headaches often find it difficult to determine the exact cause. Severe sinus headaches can be confused with migraine headaches, and some people can suffer from both conditions, where sinus headaches can even be a trigger for migraine headaches.
