DO MIGRAINES RUN IN FAMILIES?


It’s possible that there is a genetic connection to migraines. Those who have a family member who has experienced migraines are more likely to have one also.


§ Age- while these occur at any age, they tend to start during your teen years and peak during the thirties.


§ Gender – women are three times more likely to have migraines. Hormonal changes may also play a role.


SINUS HEADACHE


Patients with seasonal allergies or chronic or acute sinusitis may also have a headache. The most common cause of a sinus headache is a viral respiratory infection, or the common cold. As opposed to a migraine, which has a neurological cause, a sinus headache is caused by inflammation of the nasal passages.


Other symptoms of sinusitis include:


§ Stuffy nose


§ Pain around the eyes, cheeks and forehead


§ Decreased sense of smell


§ Excessive nasal discharge


§ Sneezing


§ Sore throat


§ Cough+/- Fever


§ Chills


SIGNS OF A SINUS HEADACHE?


A sinus headache is usually not as severe as a migraine but can still make you feel bad. Following are a few of the telltale signs that you might have one:


§ A feeling of fullness in your cheeks, brow, or forehead


§ Pain if you bend forward (or lie down)


§ Fatigue


§ Congestion


§ Aching teeth


HOW DO YOU TREAT A SINUS HEADACHE?


The key to treating a sinus headache is to address the underlying cause. Sinus headaches can be caused by chronic allergies!


However, for temporary relief, we recommend the following:


Normal saline nasal irrigation

Drink water to stay hydrated

Rest

Steam

Use a humidifier
