Zicam Sinus Headache Causes and Reviews


If you suffer from migraine headaches, you're not alone. About 12 percent of the U.S. population gets them. Migraines are recurring attacks of moderate to severe pain. The pain is throbbing or pulsing, and is often on one side of the head. During migraines, people are very sensitive to light and sound. They may also become nauseated and vomit.

Migraine is three times more common in women than in men. Some people can tell when they are about to have a migraine because they see flashing lights or zigzag lines or they temporarily lose their vision.

Many things can trigger a migraine. These include

  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Lack of food or sleep
  • Exposure to light
  • Hormonal changes (in women)

Doctors used to believe migraines were linked to the opening and narrowing of blood vessels in the head. Now they believe the cause is related to genes that control the activity of some brain cells. Medicines can help prevent migraine attacks or help relieve symptoms of attacks when they happen. For many people, treatments to relieve stress can also help.

Zicam Sinus Headache Reviews

Sat, 10 Dec 2011
I am 64 years old. Last weekend I had a classic onset of a head cold with a fever, sore throat, sinuses draining, Sinus Headache. A friend had recommended ZiCam "homeopathic" orange flavored lozenges. I let one dissolve under my tongue which took about ten minutes. Within twenty minutes, my sinuses were clear and Sinus Headache was gone, to my surprise - this was much faster than Afrin would have done, and I use sprays very cautiously and never more than three nights in a row. Then I noticed my heart was pounding very fast, I don't think it had been that fast in years - racing. I lay down and wrapped up and waited. I clocked it at 100-110 beats per minute for about ten minutes, then about 90 per minute for another ten minutes. Then it started to skip some and started to slow down. After about a half hour I had my normal rate around 70 beats/minute. I'm staying away from these "homeopathic" drugs in the future. You don't know what is in them, though I suspect some kind of ephedrine is in them though not on the label, based on the reaction I experienced. These "homeopathic" mixes don't have FDA testing but they should.
