Headache and the Sinuses

July 26, 2009 by dean · Leave a Comment 

Sinusitis is over-diagnosed as the cause of headache and migraine.

Frontal pain more likely results from migraine or tension headache.

Furthermore, according to an internationally recognised authority, just because symptoms do not respond to headache and migraine treatments it should not be assumed that sinus disease is the cause.
