    At the risk of exposing my ignorance, I don't really know what bad sinus means but I seem to have a permanently blocked or runny nose.  I noticed a mouldy odour in my bedroom and I turned my mattress over and found it was quite mildewed underneath (more of a powdery whitish mould).  I'm now wondering if this is contributing to or causing my nasal problems and migraines.  I would buy a new mattress but my partner is against the idea and says I'm imagining the mould (I'm not - he just can't smell it!).  Don't want to start a thread hijack so if this isn't the same as bad sinus, please ignore!

    Hi Fiona - I thought I had a really bad sinusitis following a viral infection a month earlier. However, following scans and a referral to see an ENT consultant I was told it definitely was migraine. I still have migraine symptoms but it has changed to earache before adverse headache. I cannot put a phone to my ears it is so bad. It's worth asking your gp to check it out. Best wishes.

    Yes and I was told by my neurologist this is another symptom of migraine, I experience running nose, ear pressure, tinnitus, blurred vision, blackouts plus headache and nausea for 2 weeks a month.
