It is usually to meet patients who suspect that they have problem of sinus. Most of these patients experienced giddy and tense across their forehead between their eyebrows or a bit above their eyebrows (It is a position of maxillary sinuses). Some patients had pain at all time; some of them had intermittent pain; while others felt pain only when associated with cold.
Actually, a pain across this area may occur from many causes. This area is a position of many organs include of forebrain, frontal bone, frontal muscles, maxillary sinuses, nasal cavity and orbits. So a pain across this area may be not always from sinus.
- Sinusitis is an inflammation of tissue lining the sinuses. An inflammation may cause to nasal discharge, pus in the nasal cavity and allergic rhinitis. Finally, it may sometime lead to pain, runny nose, drainage of mucus down the back of the throat and fever.
- Rhinitis may cause red and swollen nasal membranes as well as splitting headache across forehead area.
- Deviated nasal septum occurs when the nasal septum between your nasal passages is significantly off center. When getting cold and nasal congestion, it usually causes to swollen nasal membranes. The smaller side of the nose being more congested than the other, along with difficulty breathing and headache.
- Vision disorder (short sight, long sight, astigmatism) also cause headache and blurred vision.
- Allergic rhinitis may cause intermittently swollen nasal membranes (including sinusitis). The swollen also become painful.
- Stress may cause tension headache. The frontal muscles will likely be prone to a lot of tension. Migraine may also have mild-to-moderated cause pain between eyebrows.
- Brain diseases (especially at frontal brain) may also cause frontal headache.
The patients with unclear symptoms may require various investigations such as eye, nasal, sinus, and brain examinations.
