how can sinusitis, meningitis, intracranial bleeding, hypertension, and tumors in the brain cause headaches?

Dr. Bennett Werner
43 years experience Cardiology
Common denominator: Except for sinusitis, they all cause traction on the leptomeninges which are the only structures in the brain which have feeling/sensation. Sinusitis causes headache by a different mechanism.
