I fell flat on my face in work 3 weeks ago, my eye glasses caused a small cut to the bridge of my nose and my nose took most of the impact. The following wk I was in Az for vacation and had constand headache and sinus pain and thought it was due to the higher altitude, however since ive been back I have woken up a few times with a weird headache along my forehead and sinus pressure
