What further treatment can you suggest for chronic sinus headaches?

0

I have had allergies for the better part of my adult life and along with it have experienced excruciating sinus headaches. I have tried it all to relieve them; decongestants, antihistamines, neti pots, aspirin… Nothing seems to elevate the headaches for any more than a moment and I’m growing tired of the pain. What would you suggest?
