Sinus pressure and headache

What does it feel like?

Sinus pain and pressure can be frustrating and make you feel weakened. It can be distressing as it not only causes pain around your sinus area, but it can also feel like there is pressure around your whole head region. You may feel pressure or fullness around your eyes, cheeks, and forehead. It often gets worse if you move suddenly or bend forward.

What causes them?

When you have a cold or flu the blood vessels lining your nose and sinuses (the air-filled cavities around your nose, eyes, and cheeks) may become inflamed. This can leave you feeling like there is pressure on your sinuses and can be painful too.

What are the symptoms?

It is associated with pain in the cheekbones, forehead, or bridge of the nose. The pain can intensify with sudden head movement or straining. The pain is often accompanied by other sinus symptoms, such as nasal discharge, the feeling of fullness in the ears, fever, and facial swelling.

Sinus headaches often feel more painful in the morning because fluids have been collecting all night long. Sudden extreme changes in temperature or the environment can also feel like they worsen headache pain.

How to ease the symptoms

Here are a few tips that can help you feel better:

  • Getting plenty of rest and staying comfortably warm
  • Drinking plenty of water and non-alcoholic fluids
  • Avoid bright environments
  • Eating regular, healthy meals

You can also consider taking Nurofen Sinus Pressure & Headache Relief tablets which contain ibuprofen (an analgesic with anti-inflammatory properties) to help reduce the pain and pseudoephedrine (a decongestant) to help relieve the pressure on your sinuses by unblocking your nasal and sinus passages so you can breathe easier.
