Diagnosis of a Sinus Headache

There is no reason to suffer from a headache. The first step in treating your headache symptoms is to visit your physician for a physical examination and an evaluation of your symptoms. Your physician may conduct diagnostic tests, such as:

  • CT scan
  • MRI

Based on your test results, your physician may refer you to a specialist who focuses on headaches.
