Tis' the Season for Sinus Headaches

The temperature is dropping, Holiday decorations are taking over stores, and cold and flu season is creeping up on us. We may be looking forward to family dinners and Santa’s deliveries but we certainly aren’t looking to get sick. Cold and damp weather can increase the deep and throbbing pain caused by sinus headaches. Discover why these nasty symptoms start happening, what you can do about it, and how we can help.

Why do Sinus Headaches Happen?

Sinus headaches hit us just as we are saying goodbye to the warm months of summer and embracing the frost on our windows. These aches are a result of inflammation in the air-filled cavities around the nose, eyes, and cheeks. The symptoms are often easily confused for tension headaches or migraines because of the location of the pain.  There are additional symptoms that set sinus headaches apart from others and one of them may be the light dusting of snow on the ground. Winter is here but your painful sinus headaches don’t have to be!

Symptoms of Sinus Headaches

You could be having a sinus headache if you have experienced several of these symptoms:

  • Pressure around your nose, eyes, or cheeks
  • Worsened pain when you bend forward
  • Worsened pain in the morning
  • Congestion and runny nose
  • Sudden temperature or weather changes
  • Tenderness on the face
  • Throbbing head pain

How to Beat Sinus Headaches

1. Neck Stretches

Gently stretching the neck and relieving built up muscle tension can help relieve pain in the head. You can also massage the temples of the face to alleviate pain that affects regions around the eyes and nose.

2. Saline Nasal Spray

Purchase saline nasal spray from your local drug store to quickly clear the sinuses and provide instant relief. These sprays also provide moisture for dry and cracked nostrils.

3. Humidifier

The winter season can dry out the air and can lead to thicker mucus, blocked sinus passages, and general irritation. The mist released into the air by humidifiers can thin out the mucus inside your nose and sinuses.

4. Dietary Supplements

Several supplements may help prevent or treat sinus headaches, either by reducing sinus inflammation, or by helping to prevent the cold and flu that can lead to sinus headaches. DR-HO'S Essential Multivitamin provides more than 40 nutrients and antioxidants to help guard against the cold and flu.
