The basics of cold and sinus symptoms

The sinuses are air-filled spaces in the skull behind the forehead, nasal bones, cheeks and eyes. These spaces are lined with mucus membranes. Colds can sometimes block normal circulation through the sinuses, leading to nasal congestion, sinus pressure and headaches. Sometimes people with the flu also experience muscle and body aches, fever, and fatigue.
