A note about Sinus Headache Symptoms and Signs
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
Different individuals will suffer from this problem to a differing severity, but by focusing on how it's impacting you and learning how your own body responds, you have the best chance of dealing with it quickly.
Here are some of the important things that you should know about sinus headache symptoms.
What a Sinus Headache is
In sinus headaches, there is actual inflammation of the membrane that lines the sinuses, leading to a great deal of pain. What sets sinus headaches apart from regular headaches or simple migraines, though, is that sinus headaches don't have nausea or vomiting as a side effect, and they aren't made worse by being in an environment where there is a high amount of noise or bright light.
Causes Of Sinus Headache
The most common causes of sinus headache symptoms are coming down with a cold, an allergy, or else having an actual sinus infection. Each of these conditions causes the mucous membranes in the head to swell, which then results in congestion and discomfort.
Sinus Headache Signs and Symptoms
The symptoms of a sinus headache resemble those that you'd feel with a regular headache as well as even resemble that of a cold. Sinus headaches often come with a cold, so it's normal to experience similar symptoms as what you'd get when you're sick.
The most common sinus headache symptoms include pain and pressure along with a fullness feeling in the cheeks, brow, or forehead. This may or may not grow worse when you lean forward or lie down on a bed, so don't rely on that as a distinctive guide as to whether or not you are suffering from a sinus headache.
In addition, another common sinus headache symptom is a yellow-green color of nasal discharge, which may also at times have blood in it.
Finally, you might find that you have a sore throat, fever, or cough that accompanies the sinus headache, and most people do notice a side effect of fatigue with their sinus headache symptoms.
You should also remember that in some cases, certain people don't display the typical signs and symptoms of a sinus headache. If you are ever in doubt, do take steps to take care of yourself and to boost your immune system, and seek help from your health care practitioner if you need some expert opinion or assistance.
And if one or two symptoms of sinus headaches are present, that's enough to take action.
So be sure you keep these points in mind. When you can recognize the symptoms of a sinus headache easily and learn to understand your body, you will have a far better chance at treating this problem quickly down the road.
