So I've had a cold with a cough the past week and I think it's turned to a sinus infection I have really bad pain in my forehead like a throbbing pain and when I stand up it intensifies or when I bend down. Every time I cough my head hurts bad. Could have I damaged something inside my head through All the coughing and that's why I'm in pain. I can't cope anymore with this pain and I'm pregnant so in limited in what I can take. I'm trying not to cough doesn't hurt. Ok worried I've damaged something inside my head

You haven't damaged anything it just sounds like sinusitis poor thing. Steam inhalation and nasal rinses will help. If your snot is dark yellow, green or orange make an apt with your GP. If it's an infection there will be antibiotics which are safe to have in pregnancy.

Get your head under a towel over a bowl of hot water with menthol & eucalyptus. That will sort you out and clear your tubes out. As Paddington says, anything dark yellow, green or orange indicates infection and may require treating with antibiotics. Get well soon flowers

Steam as said by pp is the best with nurofen cold and flu. It is the only OTC product that touches sinus pain for me.

And rest!
