I am urinating a lot, no pain but a really sore head. I had a sinus infection 3 weeks ago and had antibiotics. My headache went away for a few days but im now feeling worse. I am 40 and have had a sinus operation last year.

6.     What makes you to get relief from the headache?
7.     Is it associated with nasal block/nasal discharge?
8.     Is your vision normal?
9.     Do you get headache:
a.     When you go out in the sun
b.     With fasting/skipping meals
c.     Before the onset or during the menstrual cycle
d.     On exposure to bright light or loud noise for long time

10.      Is there any weakness of the limbs associated with the headache?

I have suffered with sinus headaches a lot and have had 2 operations to fix this. The headache i am suffering from is more around the front area of my head...temples just above my ear sore to touch and the back of my neck at the top sore also to the touch. I am stress free and the light from the sun sometimes does affect and i had to wear sunglasses this morning. I am urinating a lot also...with no this connected? Antiobiotics usually help but i know continuous use of these makes me feel run down.

Welcome back to HealthcareMagic

With the brief history you have provided, the features could be of migraine associated with the sinus headache as well. The sore areas over the temples (temporal region) and over the back of the neck are suggestive of migraine.

Yes, sometimes people with migraine can have the features of polyuria (increased frequency of micturition) also during an ongoing attack of headache.

Even though migrainers experience polyuria, other causes of polyuria in women have to be ruled out. Few to mention are diabetes, women nearing menopause, over active thyroid gland, frequent urination include consuming excess water, alcohol or caffeine before going to sleep.

Please refer to the following link for your further reference.
Hope I have answered your query; I will be available to answer your follow up queries.
