I don't get headaches very often (i'm very blessed on that note)- but when I do, a little excedrine usually does the trick for me, that's why I recommended it. I hope your doctors figure out something to help you I'm sending you lots of sinus headache vibes!
Thanks I did get an MRI, for something else not for my headaches, and the neurologist I saw mentioned that my sinuses were thickened. That's when I went to the ENT and he said there was no thickening, and that it was probably allergies. So I went to the allergist and I'm not allergic to anything. It's just so frustrating.

I had migraines from 6th-9th grade. I would get them as often as twice a week, and I'd have to go home from school. They started me on a blood pressure reducing medicine and I got better. I've only had 2 since 9th grade so yeah, I do know the difference. but thanks.

I've heard of this stuff. I was skeptical at first but now that I've heard more positive reports I might try it. The thing that helps me most is tylenol, my cool lavender eye mask fresh from the freezer, some vicks vaporub under my nose, and a few hours of sleep.
