    Re: Headache when move downwards

    Well actually, are you sure, anyone who reckons this is from sinusitis? Coz this feels like it's in my brain in the centre of my head around the top and slightly to the right. The sinuses don't appear to affect this area, they seem to be, topmost, around the forehead which isn't where I'm feeling this...? :(

    Boy

    What we could do is move this thread to the forum called "Medical Tests/Symptoms discussion" as we have a neurologist that reads the posts in there.

    Maybe he could reassure you it isn't a brain tumour etc?

    Want me do to that?

    Yep sounds like sinuses to me too. i suffer like that lots. It usually goes away by itself or sometimes i go to the chemist to get something for it to take the pain away. Dont worry.

    hi my daughter who is 9 came to me the other day and said she had a headache that was worse when she looked down or when she tried to move her eyes(well i freaked,without her knowing of course!!!)so when i got to the doctors he asked if the headache was worse when looking down or bending,when she said yes he said he then knew it was a sinus infection!!!so it just goes to show that it isn,t always serious and that we do sometimes worry un-necessarily(i wish i could take my own advice!)
    take care hope you feel better soon

    Re: Headache when move downwards

    In the absence of other symptoms related to sinusitis, a common bacterial infection, then some of the possibilities would include a mucous retention cyst or other space-occupying mass of a benign nature. It is also more common that changes in weather patterns produce inflammatory response by the sinuses, particularly the frontal and ethmoid sinus regions, that produces pressure and pain. Cold, dry air can be especially irritating to sinus tissues and it's important to keep them moist using humidifiers in areas where dry heat is used to warm office or home space. Nasal saline is also available over-the-counter and several sprays of this product will help keep nasal turbines and sinuses moist.

    One of the concerns here is that you haven't developed what is known as a "fluid level" at the sinus affected because it can result in further problems.

    If you don't experience any relief after 2 weeks, then I suggest a plain film x-ray to preclude any sort of sinus obstruction.
