John Fornadley, MD, states that anterior facial discomfort is usually a manifestation of a headache disorder or underlying sinusitis. His hypothesis states that visual disturbances are helpful in differentiating migraine from sinonasal headache. This is only true for 1 type of migraine: migraine with aura. In his bottom line, Fornadley states that the differentiation of migraine from sinonasal headache must be made in light of the entire symptom complex. I agree with these views.
