A little history. I am a 48 year old female who has been getting headaches, and a stuffy head for years. The last couple years they have gotten worse. I used to think I was getting a lot of sinus infections. Fast forward to now, I have had a stuffy head since about August 15th. I had one round with antibiotics, they didn't help much, maybe a little. Then I had some pain in my left cheek, temple, and my eye was so sore, and hurt to touch, after no real relief from sprays, pain meds, allergy meds I went to the ENT. He ordered a CT scan. Well that came back fine. I still have the headaches, but the pain is not as bad on the left side of my face, it is now on both sides of my head and the sides of my nose and i have nausea. The on call ENT thinks its a migraine. I don't get much relief from Advil, but it helps take the edge off. Can migraines last for days and can they mimic a sinus infection? Last thing is I have been very stressed about my daughter who is having issues with her health and problems with her landlord.
Anyone else have sinus migraines or know if these do exist.
Thanks turn

This is a really bad time of year for me. I get a lot of headaches, it is ragweed season. My headaches turn into migraines so easily. I take something for allergies but I still get headaches.

To answer your question, I would think it totally possible for you to have sinus headaches turn into migraines. *nodding*

Now remember, I am not a Dr. but imo, I would think it possible.
