Headaches/nasal pain: Difficult to say with limited information. Your headaches need a thorough evaluation and may or may not be associated with nasal pain. A good place to start is likely an ENT evaluation with a thorough nasal exam, endoscopy to look inside. There may be problems like a deviated septum, polyps or other issues. If the headaches are determined to be unassociated, see neurologist to evaluated headaches.
