Headaches can be the ONLY sign of sinus disease leading many patients on a wild goose chase until they finally see an ear, nose, and throat physician. We have four sets of sinuses in our skull. When there is infection in the sphenoid sinus some patients will only get dull headaches. Unfortunately, many patients see multiple other doctors and end up frustrated and tired before they see and ENT.
Only ENT physicians have the special tools and training needed to visualize this sinus. By using small lights/cameras we can see deep into the sinuses and make the diagnosis saving time, energy, missed days from work for our patients.
If you are experiencing dull headaches make an appointment to see an ENT specialist. Let us partner with you towards better sinus health!
