Complaints of headache associated with nausea occurring periodically is unlikely related to cold or sinus problem. For this complaint you should visit a neurologist/ headache specialist who will take note of details of complaints and carry out clinical examination. Subsequent investigation and treatment plan will be based on this. If needed he will ask for ENT surgeon evaluation also.
