I'm sorry you are having more Migraine issues since moving. But here's the thing - Migraine is a genetic neurolgoical disease caused by overactive neurons in our brains and genetics. AND - ocular Migraine is not diagnostic term, rather a descriptive one. That's why it is so important to get an accurate diagnosis. When you get a minute, can read more about this in Ocular, Optical, and Ophthalmic Migraines and The Type of Migraine Does Matter.
So, no a sinus infection does not "cause" a Migraine attack, but can certainly trigger one. Maybe think of it like this - being overtired and generally run down won't make you get a cold, the cold virus does. Sort of like a Migraine attack. NOt enough sleep, missing meals, dehydration and then a sinus infection (although kind of rare) and BAM - there is your Migraine. Does that make sense?
Here is a link on Sinus Headache for you to take a look at:
I suffer migraines and also suffer chronic sinusitis, each time i get a migraine i usualy have a sinusitis infection. A while ago i was taken to the ER with a bad migraine and 2 days later went to see my doc because my head was still hurting especialy the forehead above and between the eyes, after a CT scan i was told there is an acute infection and every sinus cavity was filled an infected....so sinus and migraines are linked with me.
