Sinus Headache SOS!
An_205258 posted:
I've been suffering a mean sinus headache for the past few days--perhaps due to high pollen levels where I live (NY). I have a lot of allergies. I am also on Verapamil for chronic tension headaches, which was working very well until I got hit with this one over the weekend. I'm taking Zyrtec-D, and using my neti pot every morning and every evening. I'm certain it's a sinus headache as the pain is different from my tension headaches- it's lots of pressure and pain behind my eyes, forehead, and nose. Does anyone have anything to recommend for relief? Tylenol helps a bit, but my neuro told me not to take it more than twice a week to prevent rebound headaches.

I was using Nasonex for about 2 years for the sinuses then figured out it was causing more headaches. I quit using it & have been using the over the counter saline spray-Ayr. It has kept my sinuses at bay. I do have quite a bit of migraines that are more in line with menstration.

You could actually be having Cluster headaches, which have all of the symptoms you were describing, such as pain behind the eyes.
