A migraine is a type of headache that causes severe and throbbing pain on one side of the head. Migraine gets aggravated and triggered by tediously physical activities, bright lights, and extremely loud sounds. It can keep a person in bed for at least four hours or more than one week depending on the case.

Sinuses are air-filled spaces located inside the forehead, cheekbones, and behind the bridge of the nose.  Sinus headaches come with pains in the sinus regions and you experience symptoms like a runny nose, feeling of fullness in the ears, swollen face and fever. A sinus headache is developed as a result of a sinus infection.

Migraine belongs to the class of primary headaches, while sinus headache belongs to the class of secondary headaches. Migraines and sinus headaches share similarities in symptoms such as congestion, facial pressure, and runny nose. For this reason, many people mistake migraines for sinus headaches or vice versa. However, both headaches also have differences in symptoms like fever and bad breath for sinus headaches while nausea, light and sound sensitivity, loss of appetite, blurry sight, and fatigue for migraines.

Migraines are caused by external factors and could be hereditary. While sinus headaches being in the class of secondary headaches are caused by an underlying health condition.
