Are You Suffering with Symptoms of Sinusitis?

Pain? Swelling? Stagnation? Trouble Breathing?

Sinusitis is a painful condition which occurs when your sinuses swell, often leading to chronic sinus infection. In healthy sinuses, mucus drains and air is able to circulate, allowing you to breathe comfortably. When the sinuses swell, mucus is blocked from draining, which can lead to bacteria, viruses, and fungus growth, causing pain, pressure, stagnation and discomfort.

Sinusitis Symptoms May Include:
  • Loss of smell
  • Bad breath
  • Nasal drip or discharge
  • Persistent coughing
  • Headache and facial pain
  • Lack of energy; tiredness
  • Nasal congestion
  • A sore throat

There Are Three Types of Sinusitis:

Acute, Chronic or Recurrent Acute

Acute sinusitis symptoms persist for 10 to 12 days, and resolve in about one month.

Chronic sinusitis sufferers will experience symptoms persisting for longer than 3 months, including green or yellow nasal discharge, fever, irritated or puffy eyes, and a cough which worsens at night.

Four or more episodes or outbreaks of sinusitis in a single year is known as recurrent acute sinusitis. Periods of relief are followed by another outbreak as the cycle continues. Your doctor may treat you with medications or antibiotics but nothing brings long term relief.
