I found relief from sinus/polycythemia headaches by stretching my throat like yawning with my head tilted back. Soon after doing this I feel thick mucus draining down the back of my throat, most likely from my nasal sinus and the headache subsides at least temporarily. When headaches are bad, I need to do this almost constantly so my doctor told me to use an allergy nasal spray such as fluticasone or Flonase. It takes a couple of weeks to work at first but I use it every day now but still have period of persistent headaches. Three ENTs told me I have no sinus issues (MUST have a sinus infection) even though mucus drains out and down my throat each time I stretch my throat out as stated. Yeah, no infection because I have tons of neutrophils (PV condition) running around in me! Since learning I have polycythemia vera, I think the actual biology of the excess mucus may be connected with the poor circulation around my nose and sinuses due to my high hematocrit, now going down with phlebotomy treatments. Also, the increase in mucus could be connected with the higher levels of white blood cells, neutrophils for me mostly. I am looking forward to getting my hematocrit below the recommendation of 42 for women(from the highly reputable 'UpToDate' publications of "evidence based medicine".) If the headaches and mucus draining stop or are at least reduced, I think that would be a very good case to prove PV is responsible. Try the yawn stretch. It may be opening up the Ostia in the nasal passage or it may be increasing blood flow in the carotid artery/veins/capillaries or both.
