This spring has been terrible for me. Every time there's been a thunderstorm, I've had a terrible sinus headache. My doctor told me to use Sudafed. Then I read an article that said sinus headaches are usually migraines. Can you please tell me if this is true? There's a long history of migraines in my family. Thanks, Jeanine.
Sinus headache is quite rare unless there's infection present. Research has shown that more than 90 percent of what people think are sinus headaches are migraines. You can find more information on this in Sinuses Giving You a Headache? It’s Probably a Migraine .
Given some of the symptoms that can occur during a migraine and some of the places pain can occur, it's not surprising that there can be confusion. Migraines can cause a runny nose, congestion, and lacrimation (eyes tearing). The trigeminal nerve can become inflamed during a migraine.

I've seen 2 ENT's and two allergists over the last 11 years and been given K and Z packs as well as steroidal sprays and most common antibiotics. I've never had a CT scan despite insistent pleading.
I have been in constant sinus distress for about a year now with almost total loss of smell and currently have persistent headaches like I've never felt before.
