mike99 Posted August 30, 2016 Share Posted August 30, 2016 New here. Last December I experienced some extreme headaches that would hit suddenly and last for a few hours to half a day. They came back each day stronger for a few days until I ended up in the ER with the right side of my face/head going numb. The pain was focused above my right eye and caused a lot of vomiting from the pain. The hospital did a CT Scan and said they think it is related to my sinuses. While there my heart rated started dropping below 30 bpm so they also did an EKG which turned up normal. Since then I've had 2 more "episodes." The latest started yesterday. The pain usually goes away after experiencing a popping sensation where the pain is focused. I had a cold last week so I still have reason to believe it is related to sinuses but I've also had a nurse and doctor tell me they think it sounds like cluster headaches. I'm setting up an appointment with an ENT but I was wondering if this correlation sounds familiar to anyone else. Do people with cluster headaches often have sinus issues or find that the clusters start around the same time as a cold? Sorry for the long read...ended up typing more than I intended. Thanks for any help. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
