Sinus headaches and pressure post covid
AhaLyn · 30/07/2022 23:00
2 weeks out from having COVID and still have some funny symptoms and wondering if anyone else had similar?
- sinus area pain and forehead headache/pressure
- occasional flashes that look a bit like the spots you see when you feel faint but more like a camera flash light - sort of pin prick flashes in the field of vision
- Quite crushing fatigue at the end of the day

I'm about a week into covid and those symptoms are exactly what I've had and severe headaches. No real cough or cold! Also sore face when I touch my cheek so think sinus

Sorry meant to add I am negative now.
ooh sorry to hear @Legoisaws8om hope you feel better soon!

I’m 6 months after my last covid illness and just starting to get over the sinus headaches. I got a mometasone nasal spray from
the doctor that has helped but you need to do it every day. If I forgot for a few days the headaches came back.

Acupuncture has completely relieved my sinus pain, it’s worth every single penny!

I had covid 4 months ago and have had vision problems, sinus issues including bad headaches and just not quite been the same since.

@AhaLyn thanks hope your feeling okay too now! How long did it take you start testing negative?
Thanks @Fixyourself I plan to have acupuncture soon for fertility stuff but if this doesn't go away I will also look for sinus infection help!
