Sinus Headache

WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?

Sinus headaches feel like a dull, throbbing pain in the front of your head and face. 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?

Sinus headaches are caused by congestion and inflammation in your sinuses, the air-filled cavities around your nose, eyes, and cheeks.

WHAT TRIGGERS THEM?

A blocked nose and sinuses from colds and allergies can bring on a sinus headache.

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.

SINUS PAIN AND PRESSURE REMEDIES AND RELIEF: WHAT WORKS?

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

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