What is Sinus?

A sinus or sinus headache is the result of abnormal inflammation along with the build up of pressure inside the sinuses of the human skull. The sinuses are like cavities or chambers which are situated within the skull bones. The sinuses provide strength and support to the skull and also humidifies and filter the air. These chambers are lined by a membrane named as mucus membrane which releases fluid and are also connected with the nasal cavity with the help of channels and ducts.

The sinuses are also termed as paranasal sinuses because of their connectivity with the nasal cavity. Inflammation within these chambers are majorly caused due to allergies or infections and can cause the buildup of excess fluid causing headaches, fever and other problems.
