Hi,

Tricky to say in your case without a very simple examination. I get this daily and simply seeing if the patient has purulent drainage at the back of the throat is very helpful. Sinus infection might feel like a migraine but probably just as common, the irritation of the sinus infection actually triggers one. In this circumstance one has to treat both the sinus infection and the migraine.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
