Say Goodbye to Sinus Headaches

Wednesday 9 November 2011 @ 11:00 am

When you get tension headaches, you’re going to have to stop to think of it is really a tension headache or a sinus headache if you’ve never had one before. But, what is a sinus headache? What are ways on how to cure sinus infections and the tension that they cause? Is there a specific treatment for sinus headache problems? First, a sinus headache is head-pains caused by the pressure and congestion from a sinus infection (also known as sinusitis). This is an extremely common symptom of sinus problems and is the key point that separates sinusitis from the common cold or influenza.

Typically speaking, to say goodbye to sinus headaches and pressure, you’re going to have to find a remedy to treat the congestion that has built up. With excess mucous being produced, the use of expectorants and things such as moist heat, you can loosen up the excess gunk that has been lodged in your airways and sinus cavities easily. Once this pressure has subsided, you may be left with a mild headache that can be treated with pain relievers.

Over the counter medications and home remedies are equally as effective against sinus headaches. While most people will rely on things such as Sudafed to get rid of the sinus and head pains, other people like me, would rather use a more natural or homeopathic method to ease the discomfort. The best way to do this that I have found is through the use of herbal oils and neti pot irrigation. The one downside to neti pot use is that it tends to gross most people out. The thought of pouring saline solution and herbal oils into your nasal cavity simply isn’t a pleasant one. But with that said, it works, and it has been proven useful for years.

You’re in blinding pain, the room, the light, food, and all that is in existence hates you in that moment. But, you don’t have to continue to suffer through tension headaches. In fact, it is fairly easy to find help relieving tension headaches either through over the counter medication use or through more natural treatments like a hot compress on your forehead or the back of your neck.

Often times tension headaches are triggered by sinus headaches. So, this probably now has you asking, “How do I get rid of sinus headache pain?” Well, there are many different sinus headache cures available on the market place, however, if you’re looking for a sinus natural cure, you may be more hard-pressed to find one unless you are able to stomach a neti pot or herbal oils. If you can do that, you’ll be able to reap the benefits of many natural sinus headache treatment options available for you.

Whether you’re treating sinus headaches or tension headaches, you can also use things such eucalyptus or grapefruit seed oil extracts to aid in your recovery. If you’d prefer, you can also take your standard ibuprofen from over the counter, as it will help to reduce both pain and the swelling that comes along with both of these headache types.

If you’re still unable to get rid of it, use a vaporizer to moisten the air, adding some lavender oil and peppermint oil, you will be giving that nasty headache the kiss of death. If for by some fluke that this doesn’t help to get rid of your tension headache, you can take a lukewarm shower, drink lots of fluids, and try to get as much rest, as your schedule will allow you to. These are three tried and true methods to aid in the relief of all headaches.
