Do you think you have a sinus headache that won’t just go away after several treatments? Well, think twice. You could be suffering from a migraine without knowing. A Sinus Allergy & Migraine study found that 90 percent of people with a sinus headache were actually suffering from a migraine.
Sinusitis affects 37 million people each year, making it one of the most common health problems in the U.S. It is more prevalent than heart disease and asthma and has a greater impact on quality of life than chronic back pain or congestive heart failure.
If you are like many patients, you may have misdiagnosed yourself as having allergies or a cold, when you actually have sinusitis. It’s important to see your primary care doctor or an Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) doctor to get a proper diagnosis.
