Sinus headaches stop some people in their tracks. They come with pain, congestion, and pressure in your head around your eyes, forehead, and cheeks. Sometimes, people with sinus headaches know when it is going to rain, because they feel so painful. If the headaches become chronic, it can really get you down— literally, your head can feel like a million pounds. Acupuncture has shown that it is effective to treat sinus headaches.
