Sinus Headache or Migraine?
A study by the Mayo Clinic found that nearly 9 in 10 people who were diagnosed
with sinus headaches were actually suffering from migraines.
Although some of the symptoms including congestion, pressure and pain in the
forehead and around the eyes are similar, the symptoms of a true sinus
infection generally include fever, swollen lymph nodes and a persistent
green or yellow nasal discharge. If you don't have those symptoms along with
your headache, it is most likely a frontal migraine.
Doctors unwittingly and ineffectively misdiagnose and treat the symptoms of a
frontal migraine as a sinus infection with the use of antibiotics and prescription
or OTC sinus remedies. More severe treatments include sinus scrapings,
surgeries, and nasal medication - all of which are of no avail because of the
order to understand why a migraine feels like a sinus headache we need to review
the problem area of a migraine. The pain of a migraine headache is felt when
the blood vessels intertwined with the trigeminal nerves begin to expand and
put pressure on the nerve endings. This trigeminal-vascular system runs from
the temporal lobes along each side of the head and then branches out behind the
eyes across the forehead, into the cheeks and down the jaw line. The ends of
each side of this system meet to surround the sinus cavity.
As part of the migraine syndrome, the tiny hair-like blood vessels expand and
swell around the sinus cavity causing a squeezing-like pressure making
it feel like painful sinus congestion
Much time and money, not to mention the amount of pain, is spent on
trying to fight the wrong problem. The cause of migraines has nothing to do with
sinuses (nor does it have anything to do with the jaw, teeth, or the neck as
it is sometimes thought). Since migraines are genetic and caused by an abnormal
responses to hormone production, there is no sinus remedy that will help prevent
a migraine from occurring.
