I have an underlying inflammatory condition costochondritis as yet not correctly diagnosed. In summer 2016 I slipped and overstretched, crossing a small river. I developed an extremely acute pain in my lower front left ribcage... felt like the pain was surrounded by a basket like shape that you could not touch. Next morning I developed exactly the same pain and sensation in my left shoulder. Naproxen 500 did the trick quickly but the most amazing thing happened... it cleared a bout of the brain inflammation l had constantly.

I had an accident that resulted in sinus issues. I had surgery and now not only do I have infections all the time I get dizzy on occasion. What a battle. The doctor wants me to have the balloon sinuplasty. I am scared that this might make me dizzier. I have a fulltime job and really don't need this.

My sinus headache kicks off migraine headaches.

I’d like to know if children from ages 5 to 10 can have sinus headaches or migraines.
