  • Sinus Headache

    Have one..it is better today. My hon bought some nose spray for me yesterday named Afrin. It is good stuff in case anyone wants to get some to keep on hand if they get those headaches..they aren't fun. Had some prescribed allergy pills left and 800 MG Ibuprofen which has helped too. Anyway...Afrin helps alot if you have sinus headaches..hope this helps someone.

    Afrin is great for stuffy noses, but be careful, it can be addicting. Overuse can lead to the tissues swelling, and you really have a hard time breathing!! Been there done that!

        I heard Singular (sp) is supposed to be good too... (How can a cell phone company help with sinus headaches?) Ha! Hope you get better soon.

          Excedrin with a coke can help too. Usually I just have to sleep it off in a dark room with little noise.
          You might try MyCranium(SP) nose spray too. I've heard that works well.

              I had a dear friend have to have her nose reconstructed because of those nose sprays. Just use caution.

              Does anyone remember those round Vicks tubes? I used to love them!

                  ME TOO. And if I do use Afrin (or other) I only do one side.

                    When I get sinus headaches, first I use the neti pot, then lay down with hot packs on my face. What happens is your sinuses get so stuffed with gunk and your sinuses swell and they lay right on your brain. Also standing in a hot shower and let the hot water roll down your face helps also. Also the steam helps the sinuses drain.

                          A lady I work with used to suffer from Sinus Headaches and Infections a lot. She told me during my last sinus infection, that ever since she started getting the Pneumonia shots, they don't bother her anymore.. She doesn't know why, but I am going to try it this year to see if I can get some relief. I also use a Netti Pot, and am hooked on Benadryl Allergy Sinus Headache medicine...(only at night though!) If I am bothered by Sinus Headaches during the day, I use Tylenol Sinus also. Afrin Sinus is good, but I have had it make them worse sometimes too. Like it "compacts" it all up in my sinuses.. if that is possible....?

                            My DD use to get sinus infections back to back, clear one up get another less than a week leter. Our doctor did not want to give more meds so he said use saline nose spray after a few weeks it cleared everything up and she has rarely had a problem since. I don't think it can hurt you so it might be worth trying.
