Sinuses or something worse?
« on: December 02, 2013, 06:52:23 AM »
I have struggled with brain tumor fears for years, so anytime I feel pain or pressure above the neck that's the first thing that comes to mind. I recently got over a bad cold (congestion/runny nose, cough but no fever) but have been having all over headache and facial/nasal pressure for the past few days. Could this be a sinus headache even though I no longer have the nasal congestion or runny nose? I also stopped taking cold and allergy medicine, could this be withdrawal? My headache feels like pressure around the back of head neck as well as over my face, particularly my nose/eye area. The intensity ebbs and flows. If you've ever had pain or pressure like this how did you find relief? And please tell me this doesn't sound anything like a brain tumor!

It sounds like your sinuses are irritated which is perfectly normal after a cold, even if they have drained.  Take an advil or some such to make yourself more comfortable and it will pass in a few days.  Hang in there!
