Patient Comments: Sinus Headache - Symptoms

What symptoms did you experience with your sinus headache?

Comment from: Emily, 55-64 (Patient) Published: February 20

My sinus headaches affect the left side of my face, with intense pressure and pain. They happen when a high pressure weather system gives way to a low pressure system; I can tell when precipitation is going to happen by the pain in my head. I wish I knew what to take to unclog my sinuses; if I want to know when precipitation is going to happen, I can consult the weather channel.

My pains was in the base of my neck around the entire neck moving up in to the sinuses of my brain, back and side temples. Whenever I moved, coughed or sneezed it was like my head being shot off with a gun. Consistent sinus headache pain for hours on. I did not sleep for three days. Finally I had to make a trip to the hospital around 2am for relief. I was miserable!

I"ve had a sinus infection for 7 days (been to my general physician twice) and am taking steroids. One of my worst pains is that when I get up from a chair after 15 minutes or so my entire head feels like it is going to explode. After 2 to 3 minutes things get back to normal.

It began with very painful throbbing on my right frontal side then I felt it lower on my right side. I noticed when I coughed, it worsened the pain.

The symptoms I experienced with my sinus headache were severe frontal headache with throbbing temples. When I move my head, especially when I look down or sneeze I experience severe shooting pain throughout my whole head.

I used Tylenol for sinuses. It helps take away the pain. My right nostril runs all the time. I am going to try my Neddy pot today. I hope it works.

The bone of my eyebrow is aching as well as my cheekbone and my jaw bone beside my ear are also aching. I was about to stand up to wash my face in the morning. I had a cold, almost three days, and then headaches, jaw bone and cheekbone of mine started to ache, and the bone between my nose and eyes also started to ache. I felt at ease when I took a pain reliever.

I have pain in the front of my forehead. I can feel pressure behind my nose and eyes. I also have pain behind my ears and the back of my head by my neck. I have tried sinus headache medication, but after the medicine wears off the headache is back.
