“Why does my Face Hurt?” A Guide to Facial Sinus Pain
Pain from sinus pressure doesn’t always present itself in the sinuses alone - the pain and discomfort can also appear in the areas of the face surrounding the sinuses. So, if you are experiencing pressure or an aching feeling in your brow, cheeks, or forehead, it’s likely that you’re experiencing a sinus headache. The pain is usually worse if you’re leaning forward, as that puts more pressure on your sinuses. You might even feel pain in your teeth - this is because of the proximity of your jaw to your sinus cavities.
