Potentially


Swelling within the sinus could potentially impact the infraorbital nerve, causing numbness in the cheek area. If it persisted after treatment of the sinus infection, you should be evaluated by your doctor to rule-out any other pathology.

Magnesium Deficiency


Fine tune you wellness program with vits minerals, stretching yoga and massage. A good deep tissue specialist will unlock your neck, shoulders and jaws to turn off the headache triggers. Acupuncture is my treatment of choice. Magnesium Glycinate as in KAL branded is one of the best. Epsoms salts soaking is a great way to peace and quiet. Stay away from opiates, Soma, Ultram and butalbital.

It can.


A sinus infection (sinusitis) can cause a toothache — especially in the upper rear teeth, which are close to the sinuses. Pain in the upper teeth is a fairly common symptom with sinus conditions. I would assume some people could experience numbness rather than pain. Hopefully this symptom will go away as the infection is treated. If not, you may need to see a dentist.

Neck discs


If the disc herniation is pinching a nerve in the spine, then this could explain your symptoms. You should follow up with your doctor for further evaluation and management.

It's possible


There's only 2 layers of cells between your upper root tips and the inside of your maxillary sinus. If sinus inflamed, can feel like toothache. Can have referred pain to lower teeth, although less common. Sit dow, bend over and put you head between your knees. If pain increases it's sinus, see an ENT. If pain doesn't change it's dental, see a dentist.
