I think I have a sinus headache. It isn't the same as a migraine. For one thing, it is on the right side of my head rather than the left, which is where my migraines ...migrate...It also includes a slight swelling of the area just above the eye. I can feel it. I looked up sinus headaches online and most of the sources said they were associated with bad colds and so I wondered if it were one. But they also come from allergies, and I think that's what we have here.

I swam in spite of the headache, knowing it might make it worse, and it did. I went right home after the swim and drank some theraflu-type decongestant and tried to sleep. Bullet accommodatingly lay next to me and purred, which is comforting, but it didn't get me to sleep and it didn't lessen the pain. So I got up finally and took some excedrin migraine. No reason that should work if it's sinus but what the hell, at this point.I looked at the little bottles of leftover vicodin I had in my medicine box and thought about it. But that stuff tends to make me nauseous. It also has a way of not actually getting rid of headaches, but simply blocking them for a time. Then they come back.

If it isn't one thing it's another.
