I had a sinus/cold problem about a week or so ago. I developed a headache from it and it has stayed with me since then even though the stuffy nose and everything has stopped. A couple of days ago my whole head started hurting but it was different areas at different times that would hurt. Actually it was more like pressure and tingling than it was pain. My temples and eyes were mildly hurting as well. I have not felt like myself since it started but I am not sure if that is from being so stressed out about it though. I freak out when I have anything happen to me! At times I feel a little off balance but not like I can't walk though..then again that could be from stress. Today I feel somewhat better but the top of my head feels like it is sunburned or something...it is tender to the touch. I did take some sinus medicine and that has helped some. I have been so worried that something is really wrong with me though. Does anyone know if this could by sinus problems or something else?????? Please help!!!

It sounds like stress to me - Have you been under unusual stress lately?
Anytime I hear about sinus pain. headache, neck pain. think of Giant Cell Arteritis. I would check it out. Your are probably too young, but it can be serious, especially if your blood pressure is high.

Hello Kandi

How is your blood pressure? Sometimes when the pressure is up these symptoms will appear. I think it's just stress.........
It appears to me that your head is responding to all of the pressure from your sinus condition. It appears the blood vessels in your scalp are swelling up (does your scalp feel like there are tender ridges (swollen blood vessels)? When the blood vessels swell like that, the nerve endings can't take the pressure any longer, causing pain--even migraines. This can produce the headaches that you're feeling. It can affect the eyes, temples, and different parts of your head as you've described. You sound as though you're under age 50 so there's no concern for giant cell arteritis (also known as temporal arteritis causing sudden loss of vision). These headaches sound like migraines which can produce tingling as well. There are effective medications to abort them so you can continue working/functioning if they come on during working hours and allow you to operate equipment, even drive. If applicable for you, ask your physician about trying some samples.
Thank you for your replies. The headaches have pretty much gone away. Once in a while I will feel a little tingle or some pressure in my head. I still have congestion though and I have been coughing up stuff. I guess since I am feeling better and most of the problems have gone away I am assuming that it is nothing serious.

Kandi :)
