Sinus headaches is one of the less common types of headaches. According
to G. Brent Lucas, BA headaches caused from sinus infection are usually
associated with a low-grade fever and can be detected from an x-ray of
the sinus cavity. In addition, a sinus headache normally occurs as a gnawing
pain over or under the eyes.
The affected area may be painful when touched. Sometimes a blocked nostril
or stuffy feeling leads many sufferers to self-diagnose the condition,
as sinus headache. However, this is not true in most cases. Therefore,
you should check with a doctor before concluding that your headache is
caused from sinus headache.
