MRI very sensitive: Just because you have something in the sinus, it does not mean it is the cause of your symptoms. Retention cysts are common. Does light or sound bother you when you have the headache? Do you have visual changes before the headache comes? If so you may have migraine allergies can also have these MRI findings.
