Is It a Sinus Headache?

When you have a headache, all you want is to get rid of it. And when you know where your pain is coming from, you'll have a better idea about how to treat it. 

Sinus headaches are usually characterized by a throbbing pain in your forehead or behind your eyes that may increase when you lean forward or lie down.

You may also experience pressure between your eyes or tenderness in your cheekbones, a sore throat, runny nose or cough.

Why sinus headaches happen:

Nasal passages can become swollen due to environmental irritants, allergies or even a cold, which can create sinus congestion and pain.

What Next? 

First, find temporary relief with an over-the-counter pain reliever with a decongestant, such as TYLENOL® Sinus Congestion and Pain. You may also find comfort by keeping your nasal passages moist using a vaporizer or humidifier.
