Tingling in head, no pain or dizziness or nausea. Sinusitis symptom?

Once in a while I get migraines preceded by an aura. I have had chronic sinus issues my whole life. For the past two days, I have had some pressure like my sinus' might be acting up, but the odd symptom I have is tingling in just one spot on top of my head for the past 24 hours and it hasn't gone away. I don't have any major pain in my head, no dizziness, nausea, or vomiting. I was just wondering if this may be a symptom from sinusitis or possibly from a headache that came on today.

Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

Tingling in the head is not a symptom of sinusitis.

However, it could be a symptom of headache in migraine. So, I feel it is part of your migraine headaches. You would benefit from migraine medications such as rizatriptan.

Best wishes,
