Sinus headaches really migraines???
I've read in a few places while trying to look for information on my sinuses an implication that my problem is not sinuses but migraines which can mimic the congested feeling and pain. And the only sinus headaches are caused by sinus infection and not the constant pressure and congestion I experience.
So I follow the links to the migraine information and I don't see anything that even remotely describes my symptoms. I don't have any of the typical migraine symptoms. I don't see auras, not sensitive to light or sound. none of that.
I have nearly constant congestion, frequent headaches behind the eyes, and only occasionally have actual pain in my face. It is constant, not seasonal, but affected by barometric pressure changes. I also have terrible problems with pressure and flying, Often sure my brain is going to explode out one ear during landing. And then often feel like I'm underwater for days afterward.
I also never get colds and flu, which I think is because nothing gets past my sinuses. I don't think I have been sick like that since Junior High going on thirty years ago.
So which is it? Sinus or migraine?
