Sure, the pain of cold river water running through your sinuses never goes away...but I personally only get a fraction of the water up my nose that I used to. I think part of it is training myself to pressurize my sinuses, and part of it is just getting used to it.
A 1/2 hour headache and waking up in the middle of the night miserable sound pretty extreme. If it affected me that badly I would probably still wear them all the time too....
It doesn't have anything to do with "looking cool", I simply can breathe better, which allows me to stay more relaxed and to get bigger, deeper breathes before flipping in a combat situation.
