Permanent Relief from Sinus Headache Pain, so You Can Breathe Better, Today!
Sinus headaches may give you a dull throbbing pain in the front area of your head and face. This pain is caused by an inflammation in your sinuses, which are the air-filled cavities around your nose, eyes and cheeks. Healthy sinuses allow mucus to drain and circulated through the nasal passages, but when your passages become blocked or inflamed this can prevent mucus from draining. The pooled mucus is then a place for bacteria, viruses, and fungus to flourish.
Patients who suffer from chronic sinusitis may have an extremely painful sinus headache on a regular basis. The sensation is often described as “uncomfortable pressure” and tenderness around the affected area. In some cases, the pain can worsen with the slightest of change in head positions or even getting out of bed.
One sinusitis sufferer who has experienced pain from a broken arm, a torn knee ligament and back pain so severe that he could not walk, described his sinus headaches as “by far the most severe pain I have ever experienced. Nothing comes close.” Del Rey Sinus & Allergy Institute can help you conquer the pain and reclaim your life.

- Sinus pain and pressure between the eyes and above the nose that causes these areas to be tender to the touch.
