It can be hard for your doctor to tell
whether you have migraineheadaches, tension headaches,
sinus headaches, or cluster headaches. The symptoms of these headaches are
often the same, and no test can diagnose headaches.
Listing a few key features of your headaches may
help your doctor find out what type of headache you have. This can help your
doctor treat your headaches.
For example, you
may think that your headaches are sinus headaches. But if they happen often and
interfere with your daily life, they probably are migraines. A true sinus
headache is caused by a sinus infection.
