Sinus headaches are the result of swelling, inflammation or infection in one or some of the sinuses in your head. Many sinus headaches exhibit the same symptoms as tension headaches or migraines, but often have additional symptoms such as congestion, cough, sore throat, fatigue, or nasal discharge. They can be triggered by allergies, pressure changes in the ear, tooth infection, a cold, a bacterial sinus infection, or sinusitis.  While it is important to consult your doctor to accurately diagnose the type of headache you are experiencing, there are a number of different ways you can treat a sinus headache using both medical and home remedies. In general, most sinus headaches and swelling are gone within four to eight weeks with or without medical treatment.
