You may be surprised to learn that your chronic sinus headaches may not be coming from your sinuses but may actually be the result of pain referral from muscles in your head and neck creating sinus pain. Some of these muscles can even create nasal congestion, or a runny nose.

 

Between nasal congestion and discharge, facial pain, fullness, pressure, and headaches, sinus pain can make you feel pretty lousy.

Sinus pain and congestion are usually caused by seasonal allergies or the common cold. Some people, however, experience repeated bouts of sinus pain and congestion and chronic inflammation around the sinus structures and tissues.
