A:The headache is likely to be due to sinusitis. You have mentioned a normal CT scan - probably a head CT? It is unlikely to pick up any sinus disease.You should get a Plain CT scan of the Paranasal Sinuses (axial & coronal cuts). You also need to see an ENT specialist who deals with sinusitis to confirm if this is the cause of your headaches.
