Sinus Headache vs. Migraine

Sinus Headache

Firstly, sinus headaches are headaches that feel like pressure in your sinuses. You may feel this around your eyes, forehead, and cheeks. 


Some symptoms of sinus headaches include: 

  • Fatigue
  • Pain and pressure around your eyes, forehead, cheeks, teeth, and ears
  • Sinus pressure on one side of the face
  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Stuffy nose
  • Swollen face
  • Mucus like nasal discharge
  • Head congestion without nasal congestion

Often, sinus headaches don’t include all of these symptoms. For example, people report feeling sinus pressure without nasal mucus discharge. Similarly, they also report sinusitis pressure without a stuffy nose. These combinations of symptoms are widespread.

If you have a sinus headache, you can do a few things to relieve the pain or help your sinus’ heal faster. Here are some options:

  • Look into over-the-counter pain medication. Medicine like ibuprofen and acetaminophen can help relieve some of the pain you are experiencing due to the headache
  • Steam and water vapor help keep the sinus’ moist as dryness can continue to irritate them. We recommend that you take a hot bath and breathe in the steam or turn on a humidifier in your home. This way, the moisture in the air will help loosen the mucus that isn’t draining properly in your nose
  • Avoid any harsh or chemical smells like perfume or smoke. This can further irritate your nasal passages and cause your headache to worsen or for your condition to prolong


A migraine is a severe headache disorder that usually causes intense throbbing or pulsing pain.


Migraines and their intensity vary from person to person. Some symptoms of a migraine attack include:

  • Pain on one side of their head, but sometimes on both sides 
  • Nausea and vomiting  
  • Sensitivity to light and sensitivity to sound
  • Loss of appetite
  • Feeling tired
  • Feeling very warm or cold
  • Abdominal pain

If you are looking for some relief before going to a doctor, there are a couple of things you could try:

  • Stay away from any harsh or aggressive light. It is essential for people that report experiencing extreme sensitivity to light. We recommend that you sit in a dark, quiet room away from any external stimuli that could aggravate your sensitivity
  • Put an icepack on your scalp, forehead, or neck. This can help create a numbing sensation which will hopefully alleviate some of the pain
  • Keep hydrated. Some people have reported getting migraines when dehydrated. This can also irritate an already existing migraine. Drinking a lot of water can help prevent migrane


Zinc is critical for your immune health. According to a 2008 study zinc is important for the function of cells mediating innate immunity, neutrophils, and NK cells and according to a 2015 meta-analysis, it may be helpful for the common cold.

I recommend eating a zinc-rich diet full of pasture-raised beef, grass-fed poultry, oysters, wild-caught salmon, chickpeas, lentils, pumpkin seeds, cashews, and asparagus (24, 25).  If you deal with a compromised immune system, it can be very helpful to take an extra 20 mg of supplemental zinc daily to support your immune response. 

Zinc is important to take with meals, otherwise, you may experience nausea.  Our Zinc Charge uses a highly bioavailable zinc glycinate form which has been shown to absorb better than most other forms of zinc.

Immune-Supportive Nutrients

To further support your immune health, there are a variety of immune-supportive nutrients you may try. Here is what I recommend:

Why are sinus headaches and migraines confused for one another? 

So, the answer to the question, “Can you have sinus pressure but now congestion?” is: not likely. But you can have a migraine whether you’re congested or not, and this is where the main point of confusion arises.The root cause behind migraines is still up for debate. However the prevailing theory is that migraines are caused by neurological issues in the brain. Even so, the symptoms of sinus pressure can overlap with symptoms of a migraine. For example, patients suffering from either sinus pressure or migraines can experience drainage, watery eyes, and of course, facial pain. 

It is a commonly held belief that people who experience migraines have pain on the one side or the otherof their head. While this idea is true for many individuals, many others experience pain in their cheeks and forehead — ie, in the exact same place where you would experience sinus pressure. And some people experience sinus pressure on one side of their head.People who experience migraines also frequently claim that factors such as weather changes, allergies, and congestion can act as triggers (albeit not as causes) for their headaches — contributing factors also shared with sinus headaches.

Acupressure Points to Stimulate the Kidney Meridian

10) Associated Point of Kidney (B 23): This pair of points lies on either side of the lower back just above the upper rim of the sacrum. The best way to apply firm pressure to these points is to lie on the floor with a tennis ball under you. Ideally, lie on two tennis balls inside a sock to stimulate both points at once (see number 10 in second illustration above). Position the pressure an inch and a half on either side of the spine.

This will stimulate the kidney meridian. The kidneys regulate the flow of water in the body, and their health is vital for maintaining overall balance.
