Hello.

It is usual to have frontal headaches from sinusitis. But your headaches are a bit different from a sinus headache. I suspect it is a tension type headache (TTH). TTH manifests as headache with a sensation of a tight band around the head. This type of headache is brought on by stress and anxiety.

You need to observe the factors which bring on and relieve the headache.

Do you have blood pressure issues? This is just to rule out hypertensive headache.

Regards

Hi no my blood pressure is fine I was thinking it might be a tension headache but is it usual for the pain to be burning? I've had it for about 3 months now and am waiting to be referred to the hospital.

Thanks for your reply

I'm having the same symptoms, with no infection.  I'll be watching this. I also have some vertigo.  It just started.  

I'll be watching this to see if you get any answers.  Thanks.
