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:
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) sinuses.
