GERD: GERD can cause headaches and sinusitis as acid refluxes into the head especially when we sleep. Elevate head of bed with pillow between box spring and mattress Try OTC ranitidine / prevecid Check for H pylori a bacteria associated with gastritis.Check TSH/T4 . Avoid alcohol smoking, aspirin , NSAIDS( ibuprofen meds) , spicy fatty foods ,caffeine as that all worsens GERD.f/u/ w/doc
