sinus cyst and migraines

My question is this: can a cyst make migraines worse or more frequent? I am perimenapausal and I was told by 2 doctors that the migraines were hormonal. I recently had a basic ct scan where a cyst was found in the right sinus cavity. The meds for migraines have not helped, only made things worse. My headaches are daily and most of the time they are like a ghost over my right cheek bone and right eye. they get worse about twice a month and last three to five days with severe pain, blurred vision, sensitivity to light and sounds and smells. What should I do?

You have not mentioned clearly where was the cyst located?
Are you suffering from any sneezing, running nose or nasal block?

Migraine by itself is such a confusing condition where in researchers have not been able to identify the exact cause. Lots of speculations, but none of them substantiated. "Remember there is no cure for migraine". Prevention is the best medicine.

Migraine is triggered by even a small amount stress in any form, be it allergic, skipping of the meals, menstruation, travelling, etc.

Try life style modifications like:
1. Drink plenty of water
2. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables
3. Everyday have food at the same time
4. Do not skip your meals
5. Go for a evening or a morning walk
6. Keep yourself relaxed avoid getting excited easily
7. Sleep for at least 7-8 hours continuously
8. Avoid cheese, ice creams, chocolates and fizzy drinks

Also consult your neurologist for a thorough check-up.

Anymore doubts you are welcome.
