If you experience these symptoms, consult with our sinus headache doctor to receive a comprehensive treatment plan to manage your sinus pain. Gramercy Pain Center offers holistic solutions for patients experiencing sinusitis and other conditions related to pain and injury.

Treat Sinus Headaches at Gramercy Pain Center

Sinus headache is head pain involving facial pain due to sinusitis or infection in the nasal passages. Patients may feel throbbing pain around their eyes, forehead, and cheeks.

Symptoms of Sinus Headaches:

A sinus headache may sometimes seem like a tension headache, migraine headache, or any other type of condition involving head pain. Patients need to seek medical attention to diagnose sinus headaches.

Here are some of the symptoms of sinus headache:

  • fever
  • nasal congestion
  • pressure behind forehead
  • runny nose
  • sore throat
  • sinus pressure
  • weakened sense of smell
  • worsened pain when leaning forward
  • discolored nasal discharge

Those experiencing these sinus symptoms may book an appointment with our sinus headache doctor at Gramercy Pain Center.

Causes of Sinus Headache

Sinus headache pain is caused by sinusitis or sinus inflammation, where the nasal passages become infected. Inflammation in the sinus cavity, on the other hand, is caused by different triggers.

Sinus headache and chronic sinusitis are caused by:

  • Viral infection - viral infection is the most common cause of sinusitis, which results in a sinus headache. According to a study, 90% of those with flu also have a sinus infection.
  • Fungal infection - immunocompromised patients have high risks of their fungal infection developing into a sinus infection and sinus headache.
  • Bacterial infection - this usually happens after a viral infection, causing sinus symptoms to last longer.
  • Structural differences - nasal congestion from a deviated septum, enlarged adenoids, or nasal polyps can also trigger a sinus inflammation. This happens due to the sinus failing to drain properly.
  • Seasonal allergies - allergies lasting a longer time can cause sinus inflammation, called hay fever or allergic rhinitis.

Have your sinus problem checked by our board-certified experts to correctly diagnose sinus headaches. Patients with frequent sinus infections may actually have chronic sinusitis. Gramercy Pain Center will also assess your headache pain to rule out migraine headache or tension headache.

A Sinus Headache or Migraine?

Sinus headache pain is usually mistaken for migraine or vice versa. That's why it's necessary to seek the help of a headache specialist to accurately diagnose sinus headaches.

Diagnosing Your Condition

Treating headaches from frequent sinus infections starts with a series of consultations and tests to verify if what patients have is a sinus problem. Sinus headache is often mistaken for migraine or tension headache. This allows our highly-trained experts to provide appropriate treatment options.


Our sinus headache doctor will interview you about your sinus pain. They will ask questions about your headache, facial pain, sinus pressure, and other symptoms. This is to draft an accurate medical history and assessment.

To have a fruitful consultation, patients may also prepare a journal with entries about their rebound headaches, triggers, and others.

Imaging Tests

Patients experiencing chronic sinus pain may also be requested to undergo imaging tests to diagnose sinus headaches.

  • MRI - captures cross-sectional images of the structures in the brain.
  • CT scan - shows cross-sectional images of your brain and head, including the sinuses.
  • Nasal endoscopy - a camera attached in a thin and flexible tube to be inserted into your nasal passages to assess the sinus cavity.
