I’ve been experimenting with my own sensitivities to my sinuses (which I consider a chronic problem).  I sometimes get headaches by concentrating too much in my head.  One of the teachings I was taught was to focus on my feet or lower part of the body.   Now I know that there are multiple ways to approach this.  One of those I am using today is “Big Mind” or “Open Awareness Meditation”.  Another way I approached sense inputs was to let go of them as soon as I am aware of them.  All kinds of variations.
