I have been having severe burning in my sinuses and a headache foe almost 3 weeks now,  what can this be and what can I do for relief?

Sinusitis: Headache for 3 weeks and sinus pain may be chronic sinusitis. Lasting that long - you should see a doctor. Though sinus pain is not often described as "burning", so that has me a little confused. Until you're seen - try steam inhalations and pain relieving medications. Hope you're better soon. 3 weeks is a long time to feel bad. ...Read more

What causes headaches with burning sensations, stiff neck, sharp pains, and nasuea?

What causes headaches with burning sensations, stiff neck, sharp pains, and nasuea?

Migraine vs Virus: I concur with dr silver. Most instances of meningitis are aseptic meningitis--usually virus inflaming the meninges. It is painful with stiff neck, ha & nausea, but it goes away like any other virus--rest, fluids, tylenol (acetaminophen) or Ibuprofen for pain. Red flags for something worse = high fever over 102f, somnolence, vomiting, seizure, or loss of strength, sensation, hearing or vision. Feel better soon! ...Read more

Virus?: If this happened a single time & resolved on it's own, it's possibly a virus or due to toxic exposure (carbon monoxide, for instance).
