Dry forced air heat system at work, combined with dust and other allergens such as old carpets, feather pillow and chemicals used in cleaning cause my sinus headache. Combine all of these with a long cold spell and closed house with stale air, and it is a battle to stay healthy.

The cause of my sinus headache is severe dry air in new house. Portable humidifiers could not add enough moisture.

I have been suffering from headaches for about 2 years and believe it was brought on by the air conditioner at work. I get a lot of tension at front of my forehead. Sometimes when I touch or squeeze my forehead it feels like something is there. I get no runny nose.
