Q: sinus headache?
i’ve got all the classic signs of a sinus headache
pain from the back of one eye toward the temple
but i got over my congestion 3 days ago, then headache started, now my right eye is blurry. is this normal? when will it go away? i don’t have any fever and those are the only problems.
A: Not sure when it will go away, but maybe your sinuses are still clogged. try a nasal wash. my sister swears by it. here’s some info. http://www.healing-thyself-naturally.com/nasalwash.htm
her recipe is as follows: 1/4 tsp of sea salt for 8 oz. of warm/hot water. use a blue bulb syringe (mostly found in the baby isle). suck up water and squirt up one nostril and blow out. DO NOT SWALLOW! i find that holding my breath makes it a lot easier. repeat on each nostril till the solution is gone. if there’s any mucus left, the warm water should coax it out. be sure to lean your head over a sink as it can get messy – water everywhere.
if you have any questions, let me know.
Q: Sinus headache?
About once a week I get these terrible headaches behind my left eye and at the base of the back of my head. And anytime I am sitting down, but then stand to go do something, it gets worse. It’s almost like a wave of a worse headache. I’m pretty sure they’re sinus headaches and they usually go away the next morning. I’ve tried everything: Vicks, hot showers, every OTC meds available…but nothing seems to help. Is there anything else that can help relieve sinus headaches?
A: Pain killers don’t cure the pain but you loose the sense of pain and in the meantime body itself cures sometimes.
There is no medicine for H/A OR MIGRAINE. Not only these but for almost all painful diseases. Hence they become chronic.
Acidity, WORRY, excessive wind, cold , heat, sour food and sinusitis, constipation, intestinal inflammation; drugs,
Blockage in the flow of Vital Energy are their causes. None of them can be treated with medicine. Our 100% success in treating migraine &H/A confirms it.
Acupuncture is the best treatment. I can treat it with naturopathy and YOG, but how can you manage pl see.
Avoid late sleeping if possible; worry, spicy foods, sour fruits, stale bakery foods and alcohole.
Sweet foods, COCOANUT WATER,sweet fruits, milk, rice, SPROUTS, SALADS and good sleep will help you.
But you try one herbal remedy- two drops of drumstick leaves’ juice in opposite nostril if one side pains and both nostrils if full H/A will give you rescue. Betel leaf helps but it isvery strong.
If it is acute pl search a painful point 3-6 mm behind your thumb nail and press it, H/A will disappear within 30 seconds.

Q: I have a Sinus headache; any home or herbal remedies to treat it?
I’ve had a throbbing headache for several days now, which I suspect may be due to a Sinus inflamation, or nasal congestion of some sort.
Any suggestions on how to treat it, preferably herbal or home remedies? Thanks.
I appreciate all the suggestions, I’ll be sure to try them out. Thanks again, and Happy Holidays!
A: Breathing steam is a really good option, as is a hot compress on your forehead. I also find that having someone massage my head, right around the point where your eyebrows run into your nose (up under your eyebrows), putting steady pressure there can really help temporarily. Drink lots of fluids.
But, if you actually have a sinus infection the best way to get healthy in a timely fashion is to take a decongestant and see your doctor about an antibiotic. The first things I listed will help with the symptoms, but medicine will deal with the cause.
Q: What are some fast ways to get rid of a sinus headache?
I have had a big sinus headache all day. I have took tylenol and a sinus rinse. Are there any good fast acting ways to get rid of my headache?
I kind of already drink coffee regularly anyways so I’m not sure if that makes a difference
A: If you’re diagnosed with sinusitis, your doctor may recommend antibiotics. Be sure to finish the entire course of medication you are prescribed- even if your signs and symptoms disappear before all the pills or capsules are gone. This is the only way to eradicate the germs causing the infection. If the sinusitis is related to inflammation or allergies, your doctor may prescribe corticosteroid nasal sprays or pills.
As the sinus infection clears up, the sinus headaches should disappear. In the meantime, over-the-counter pain relievers, decongestants and saline nasal spray might help you feel better. Use these products only as directed. It may help to drink plenty of fluids as well.
If a structural problem in your nasal cavity is contributing to sinusitis or sinus headaches, surgical correction may be recommended.
Q: Can a sinus headache just randomly cause nausea?
I’ve had a splitting headache for a few hours, and now I’m feeling very nauseous.
I believe this is a sinus related headache, because I’ve had mild cold symptoms today. . . Have you ever experienced nausea with a sinus headache?
A: Yes it can. Headaches cause nausea on their own, but sinus headaches are caused by a buildup of pressure in the sinus cavities combined with swelling, inflammation, and occasionally infection. If the pressure in the sinus cavities gets great enough to cause pressure on the blood vessels and nerves to the brain, or worse, in the brain itself, nausea is sure to follow. Even without this, the other causes of sinus headaches are prime causes for nausea. Additionally, when a person has sinusitis, they require more fluid than normal, but tend to consume less. Thus, the resulting dehydration may lead to further nausea.
Because you are not entirely sure that this is caused by sinusitis, it is equally possible that you are developing the flu. In either case, you should be proactive. Take a steam bath to clear out and open your sinus cavities, and remove excess mucous before it helps to build an infection. You may want to take a de-congestant like Musinex DM or Sudafed D. If you develop a fever, or stay sick for more than a week, go to see a doctor, you may have developed an infection, or caught the flu.
Q: What can I do to heal a Sinus Headache without taking antibiotics?
I am not fond of taking any antibiotics as I feel that the natural approach to healing is always much better…..I have had a sinus headache for about 24 hours. I have had some major relief from breathing in steam, but is there anything I can take naturally to further help the healing process? Thanks in advance for your answers.
A: Take an over the counter decongestant. I like Sudafed (little, red pills) they help sooo much. Also try using a neti pot to rinse your sinuses. (I just use a cup) but basically you mix salt into warm water and inhale it into your nostrils and then let it run out. I do it in the shower. This helps if you have mucus but if your sinuses are just swollen then get a decongestant.
Antibiotics only help if you have a sinus infection…which occurs most frequently about 2 weeks after the start of a cold.
Q: How can you get rid of a sinus headache?
How can you get rid of or help alleviate a sinus headache when you have no sinus medicine?
A: boil water and put a towel over your head over the boiling water. breathe in the vapors. it will clear you right up…
Q: What is the best thing to do for a sinus headache other than taking medicine?
I took sudafed sinus headache an hour ago and can’t take more for at least three hours. It is extremely painful and I can’t fall asleep. I am also 15 weeks pregnant so my options are limited. Are there any foods that will help or anything at all? I can’t go to a doctor until tomorrow.
A: Hot shower or just fill your sink up with hot water and hold your face in the steam – w/o burning yourself. Also. try spicy foods this can help get the sinus’ moving along. Ice packs or heating pad — everyone’s different, whichever gives you relief. If it’s cold where you are go outside for a short walk sometime the cold air can clear up your sinus’ too.
Q: Severe sinus headache and now coughing is making it unbearable. Is this worth a trip to the ER on a Saturday?
I’ve got a raging headache, no fever or vomiting and thinks it’s sinus related. Have had it off and on for one week. My ears are popping and now I’m coughing. My neck hurts and the coughing is making the headache unbearable. I can’t function normally. It’s Saturday and don’t know if the ER room is the right choice. My doctor on call can’t help with any meds. Help!
A: If you can type on a computer then it doesn’t sound like it’s bad enough to warrant a trip to the ER. In the ER you will wait in a poorly lit, loud and crowded waiting room for a long time and it will cost a ton. You won’t get priority treatment with a headache, unless you faint or seize, so everyone who comes in after you that looks or sounds worse than ‘headache’ will get treated before you until you give up or they have some spare time. I come from a family of migraine sufferers with headaches that range from bad to where we just sleep for an entire day to the other end where it turned out to be a mild stroke… So I have some experience with what a bad nasty headache is, what is about to turn into an actual migraine and what is just a headache.
How about a trip to a Primacare (one of those chain clinics that are open late and on weekends)? You sound like maybe you need some kind of anti-inflammatory like a one-time celebrex dose or even a cortisone shot if it is really bad.
If I were you, I would darken my room (cover the windows and turn out all lights in adjacent rooms), make it as quiet as possible and sleep off the headache as best as you can. Sleep is the best treatment you can give yourself when a nasty headache hits.
Q: What is a good home remedy for a pulsating sinus headache ?
I took some Sudafed for sinus headache and a few hours later I still have the sinus headache.

To answer your problem, I may have to ask you certain question which will be related to your symptoms only.
Our science allows asking questions to arrive at the cause of symptoms, which can eliminate the symptoms for a long time to come. You may choose not to answer, but that may prevent me from diagnosing the problem.
1. To avoid this pain, you need to alter the way you eat & drink. Stop drinking water with food. This will automatically help in increasing the digestive power in your stomach, improve the quality of your digestive enzymes & provide proper nutrition to the body. you can drink water 1/2 an hour after you have consumed your food.
2. Sinus headaches usually occur because of the accumulation of mucus in the sinus cavities, under the cheeks, i nside the forehead, & also in the stomach & intestines. When yuo drink water with food, the enzymes that are present in the stomach get diluted & loose their effenciency to break down food. They then start travelling towards the intestines as a natural route.
the intestines, as a defence mechanism, produce more mucus than there is to protect heir walls from erosion from the acid inflow. this extra mucus naturally starts travelling up to the lungs & Sinus pockets & troubles you.
Boil 1 tsp of Licorice powder in 100 ml of water. Take the kettle off the stove. Pour 10 drops of clarified butter into it. Sip it slowly. you will have to take a few sips, once every 10 minutes, 6 times in a row. Do this for 3 days & watch your Sinus disappear. It is good to consume it especially after food.
Also, you can boil 2 tsps. of Fenugreek seeds in water. Add 2 pinches of Turmeric powder & inhale the fumes when the water starts to boil. Do not go too close to the kettle or you may burn your nose or your cheeks. Do this for 2 days.
There are certain other necessary precautions you may adopt to keep yourself from further Sinus attacks. they are;
2. Try to avoid eating & working at the same time. Also, while eating, do not talk or watch TV. Try to concentrate on your food, chew properly.
3. Try to sit down for 10 minutes after food. Let the digestive process begin.
4. Try to avoid eating late or sleeping late at night. Give a 2 hour gap between the last intake of food & sleep.
5. have a warm shower at least 45 minutes before you retire to bed.

Also some of this may help?
1. Feel the top ridge of your eye socket under the eyebrow. You will discover a small groove in your skull about the center of the top of the eye socket. In this groove is a nerve which is very sensitive to pressure. If you compress this nerve, it will be very painful. However, the pain will stimulate the pituitary to release endorphins immediately. The endorphins are the body’s own natural painkillers and are more powerful than morphine. To stimulate the nerve, push hard against it for about 10 seconds.
2. A similar method for releasing endorphins is to take a couple teaspoons of cayenne pepper in a glass of water. This is not harmful. When the cayenne hits the stomach lining, endorphins will be released by the brain to stop the pain.
3. Put a cold rag on your neck or forehead. Many headaches are caused by tense neck muscles. Conversely, use a moist hot pack to loosen up tense muscles – see which works best for you.
4. Massage the ears and ear lobes as well as the neck. If you can, find two tennis balls or raquette balls and put them in a sock. Lay on a flat surface and place the two balls just below the base of your skull on the occipital and relax. You may feel sinus pressure or minimal discomfort at first but it will go away. Lay in this position with the still point on the occipital for as long as needed. This is especially helpful for sinus headaches.
5. Similar in concept to the endorphin release – nerve stimulation through acupressure can offer some relief of symptoms. Search for “Do-in” or “acupressure” on the web.
6. *Reflexology – With one hand, massage the area between the thumb and forefinger on the other hand and hold. Use only as much pressure as you can tolerate and be sure to breath deeply and relax-this spot will probably be painful. Hold it until the pain level reduces significantly and repeat with more pressure. Do this on both hands and repeat as needed.
And so you dont hurt yourself here Warnings
* Overdosing with Tylenol is highly toxic to the liver. No more than 2 in a four hour period! Taking Tylenol with alcohol greatly increases the danger to the liver.
* Behind the sternocleidomastoid is the carotid artery and vagus nerve. Pinching these off can cause faintness or even brain damage by disturbing blood flow to the brain. If you feel faint, dizzy, or nauseated while working on that muscle, stop immediately and lie down for several minutes.
