Dr. Keith M. Dockery from Buckhead ENT answers a reader’s question about sinus and migraine headaches.

Dockery, MD, Keith_need cred

Q: Is it a sinus or migraine headache? 

A: Sinus headaches could have associated eye, cheek or forehead pressure and pain. They might also be accompanied by some nasal congestion and postnasal drip. Migraines often have a preceding aura, involve one side of the head or face, or may even make one sensitive to light and sound. Sometimes migraines might be brought on by a sinus-related issue, so a complete ENT and neurologic exam and appropriate imaging will help in making the diagnosis.
