Your sinuses are air-filled spaces inside your forehead, cheekbones, and behind the bridge of your nose. When they get inflamed – usually because of an allergic reaction or an infection – they swell, make more mucus, and the channels that drain them can get blocked. The build-up of pressure in your sinuses causes pain that feels like a headache.
Symptoms of sinus pain and headache include pain associated with congestion from a common cold or allergies; pain around your eyes, forehead, or over your teeth; pain that is worse in the morning; and pain that gets worse when you bend over. Some natural methods can relieve your sinus pain – check out these methods!
