What are Headaches?
A headache can be something as simple as a dull pain from dehydration to an intense migraine brought on by stress. That being said, when our patients come in describing headaches, they often complain of a dull or pressing pain accompanied by sinus pressure, a runny nose, congestion, or a sinus infection. These headaches are oftentimes caused by the intense pressure in the sinuses coupled with lack of sleep. If you find that you’re experiencing chronic headaches in addition to one or more of the following symptoms, we encourage you to come into our office for a private consultation at your earliest convenience.
- Runny Nose
- Poor Sleep
- Facial Pain
- Nasal Obstruction & Congestion
- Chronic Sinusitis
- Ear Pressure & Fullness
- Ear Infections
How Much Does Treatment for Headaches Cost?
The cost of your headache treatment will vary depending on the individualized treatment plan recommended for you and your current health insurance coverage. To get a more accurate assessment of how much your headache treatment will cost, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with Dr. Elangovan. At Resolve ENT, we are also happy to offer financing that helps you more easily pay for your treatments at your convenience.
What Causes Headaches?
The headaches that our patients experience are often caused by a buildup of fluid in the sinuses that has no way of draining properly in addition to a lack of sleep. This fluid buildup creates intense pressure against our facial structures and results in dull, chronic pain behind the eyes and nose or around the head. These patients often also experience poor sleep, which can cause their headaches to intensify over time.
What are the Dangers of Headaches?
Just like a runny nose, a simple headache by itself isn’t necessarily harmful. However, patients who come in complaining of constant headaches may also find that they have chronic sinus infections or intense facial pain and aren’t able to sleep well at night. This may cause our patients to suffer both physically and mentally, as their quality of sleep begins to suffer. Patients with these headaches may see they are less interested in activities they once used to enjoy, are more depressed on a regular basis, and have trouble focusing on normal daily tasks such as school and work.
