Stabbing pains on right side due to sinus headaches
Wanted to know if there are any other people that suffer from sinus headaches the same way my mother and I do. They can come with such force that they cause you to wince in pain. Touching even your hair in the same spot on the top right side of the head is excruciating.
I feel confident that they are sinus related due to the fact that they coincide with nasal congestion. Furthermore, when going to the emergency room on one occasion because I couldn't take the pain any longer, they x-rayed my head and could see a severe nasal infection of the right side. (As a side note, when they prescribed antibiotics, they also unfortunately prescribed a pain reliever with codeine in it to which I am very allergic. You can image the pressure created in one's head as you have to throw up.)
Anyone else plagued by sinus infections on top of your head, and can you suggest anything to prevent these?
