Sinus Headaches

What Are Sinus Headaches?

A “sinus headache” can mean many different things to many different people. A lot of patients refer to any facial pressure or pain as a sinus headache.

Sinus headaches can be brought on by changes in barometric pressure. This can lead to the swelling of the lining of the nasal passages, which can trigger a sinus headache.

There are several things that can cause facial pressure and pain that are not specifically sinus related. These can include anything from atypical migraines, cervical neck problems, to temporo-mandibular disorders (TMD).
