It is reported that a headache is
rarely a symptom of sinusitis and a "sinus headache" is often a
misdiagnosis of a migraine. However I used to suffer from
sinus headaches-- no doubt in my mind. They were from
exposure to dust, old dust, smog and dust mites and my
diet but I did get rid of them - never to return-

This is what the medical literature is reporting however
Acute sinusitis can cause pressure within the sinus cavities
of the head, but this typically has associated pain to
palpation of the sinus area and purulent greenish (should be
yellowish?) discharge from the nose. The use of the term
sinus headache therefore is often misleading and results in
underdiagnosis of migraine. they report. Recent studies
indicate that up to 90% of "sinus headaches" are migraine.
This confusion occurs in part because migraine involves the
activation of the trigeminal nerves which innervate both the
sinus region but also the meninges which surround the brain. As
a result, the direct determination of the site of pain
origination can be confused on a cortical level. Also, nasal
congestion is not an uncommon result of migraine headaches,
further confusing the issue.
A recent study further demonstrated that most patients with
"sinus headache" respond to triptan migraine medications,
and state dissatisfaction with their
treatment when they are treated with decongestants or
While most of the patients with sinusitis have some
sort of facial pain, pressure, or headache, not all of the
patients who attribute the symptom of headache to their sinuses
may have legitimate diseases of the sinus.
Acute and chronic sinusitis can cause pressure within the
sinus cavities of the head, but this is associated with pain on
palpation of the sinus area. So we still don't know the answer.
