What causes headache after sneezing?
User rating for this question
Hi. Yesterday I had a sneezing fit. Then, a headache on one side of my head right afterward, near the temple. I took a Benadryl and it eased the headache. I still felt some pain when I coughed a little. Then, it was gone. Today, I sneezed again, the pain came back on the same side, and when I blew my nose there was a small amount of blood from the nostril on the side of the headache. Now, it's gone. What the heck's going on? Sinusitis? Thank you!

Brief Answer: Sinus headache Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for your query. 1. The headache after sneezing is most likely to be a sinus headache. 2. The Benadryl will help control the allergy and sneezing. Keep your mouth open while sneezing. 3. It would be ideal to get the nose examined, though a slight blood bleeding should not be a cause for worry. Its just that a one sided bleeding must be examined closely. 4. Decongestant medication may help. This will require a prescription. 5. If this does not subside in an few days, a nasal endoscopy and a sinus x-ray will help rule out sinusitis. I hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be available to answer them. Regards.
