Does anyone know if sinus rinsing with salt causes Migraines?  I had Migraine palooza-so deciced to stop the salt sinus rinse & have not had a migraine for several days. I used Flonase without the rinse in the past and did not suffer any migraines. Does anyone know if there is any data written on the subject?

Do you mean Neti? I used to do that but never had migraine out of it, felt dizzy sometimes for a while but not more than 10 mins, due to water left in sinuses.
Diagnosed March 2007 with left sided UC at the age of 30.
