I have had sinusitis on and off for as long as I can remember - I had an operation to correct a deviated septem which left me in hospital for a week after it went wrong.
I've basically got used to having the on-off sinus infections which the slight headaches, eye aches, blockages and post nasal drip. But a few days ago i had been sneezing quite a bit and having an on/off ear ache and then started to get what felt like a very bad headache on top of my head and over the forehead.
The headache lasted for 4-5 days and during that time my sinuses were blocked. eyes felt pressured and pressing on forehead just above my nose hurt.
I tried a decongestant spray as tablets didn't seem to make any difference, this opened up both sides of my nose so I could breath ok and seemed to push a lot of mucus down my throat (which I guess then caused a sore throat).
The headache has eased off but the pain in the forehead above the nose and around it hasn't. I feel like I can press it and feel fluid drain away too.
The reason I worry about a brain tumor is that I started to get what can only be described as cold chills on one side of my face and then on my normal bus trip home yesterday I started to feel nausea which i never seem to get. That lasted for four hours.
I have health anxiety so none of this helps.
