    I suffer from burning nose/ethmoid sinus pain. At first it was one sided, after about an year it became both-sided. Could it be from a nerve getting pinched in my cervical spine? What kind of Imaging Investigations do I need?

    these are from my Sinus MRI, but I only have sagital view. Could axial images bring any information that could be useful in my pain condition?

    Nerves that originate in the cervical spine do not service the face. I would recommend an ENT physician specialist (ears/nose/throat) for further investigations.
