Talking about headaches, migraine is the worst kind. The victims suffer from an intense pain and they feel nauseous and dizzy during a severe attack. Migraine may be triggered by almost anything, be it hormonal fluctuations, certain foods or scents, changes in altitude or seasons, missing a meal, birth control pills or staying in a stuffy room.
Researchers state that migraine symptoms are caused due to the changes in the blood vessels’ diameter in the head, but they are not sure as to why these changes occur.
As far as the treatment of migraine is concerned, over-the-counter drugs such as ibuprofen and aspirin work for almost all types of headaches but they are ineffective in the case of migraines. Migraine sufferers seek doctors for help and the medication works but unfortunately it does no good to many people complaining about migraines.

They also reduce the weight of your skull, keeping it safe against shocks, thus, giving you better balance. The main function of sinuses is to purify inhaled air and to prevent the mucus from reaching the lungs, where it can cause infection.
Sinusitis occurs when nasal passages and sinus linings become sore and irritated by a viral infection such as cold or flu, air pollution, allergy attack or smoke. In this case, the nose and sinus membranes secrete more than usual amount of mucus. Swelling of the sinuses pose a major problem i.e. blockage of the nasal openings which prevents an easy flow of mucus and air. Now, this is a perfect stage for bacteria to flourish. There are two types of sinus infection: acute and chronic.
