Nasal Headaches

Many patients have recurrent headaches around one or the other eye and above the nose. These headaches are often associated with changes in the weather, and many patients report they can predict a thunderstorm. A small but substantial minority of patients experience chronic daily headaches, which significantly impacts the quality of their lives.

How we help our patients

If you have persistent sinus type headaches and have already had more serious forms of headaches ruled out by your doctor or a neurologist, Dr. Zimmer and Dr. Chmiel can perform a simple test when you have a headache to see if you have a “sinus headache.” Even if you have already had an MRI or other X- Ray of the head and sinuses that has been read as normal, the doctors at Amherst ENT can sometimes find subtle abnormalities that can contribute to your headaches. See below for the science behind nasal headaches.
