Sinus Headache Symptoms
The pain of a sinus headache is often felt over the affected area(s) and has
been described as a sensation of uncomfortable pressure. There may be tenderness
when the area is touched. The pain can worsen upon changing head positions or
arising from bed.
Nasal discharge may accompany inflammatory processes in the sinuses. The
drainage may be clear or may be greenish-yellow in color. Greenish-yellow
discharge usually signals that an infection is present.
Other signs of an
infection may also develop including:
- tiredness, and
- body aches.
Swollen lymph nodes in the neck can accompany a sinus infection. Pain in the jaw
or upper teeth may be felt in cases of inflammation of the maxillary (cheekbone)
