Chronic Sinusitis Pain

Sinus Inflammation and Pain

Inflamed sinus tissue results in infection

Many things can irritate sinus membranes and passageways – pollutants in the air, chemicals, allergens like dust and pollen, cigarette smoke, bacteria, viruses – anything you inhale. Irritation can cause the sinus membranes and passages to swell which interferes with their ability to drain properly.  This is when you experience Sinusitis with all its unpleasant symptoms.  Without proper sinus drainage, mucus accumulates in your sinuses and creates a perfect breeding ground for bacteria that lead to sinus infections.  Your symptoms usually get worse as the sinus infection develops.

When the sinus-lining tissue becomes inflamed, infection may result in one of several different types of sinusitis. Swelling impairs normal sinus function, causing the nasal cavity to become a stagnant breeding ground for bacterial and viral sinus infections.

How do I know if I have Chronic Sinusitis?

Many sinusitis sufferers can be treated with home remedies, such as OTC (over-the-counter) medications. But, if you experience lengthy periods of sinus pain, you may be stuck in a cycle of sinus infection.

When a sinus sufferer experiences four or more episodes of chronic sinus infection in a single year, this is known as recurrent acute sinusitis. By this time in the sinus infection cycle, you may have made multiple trips to the doctor, and been prescribed medications or antibiotics that seem to have little or no effect. You want to achieve long-lasting relief, but you have become frustrated by your painful, recurrent symptoms.

Most cases of acute sinus infection are typically short and persist for less than two weeks. Headaches, pressure, and swelling should be expected as the infection runs its course.

If your condition includes such unpleasant symptoms as fever, nasal discharge, irritated, watery eyes, or a cough that just won’t go away after 30 days, you are likely trapped in a cycle of chronic sinusitis.  Here are some typical symptoms:

  • Facial pain and pressure
  • Headaches and fatigue
  • Pain in the upper teeth
  • Congestion or stuffy nose
  • Nasal Discharge (sometimes thick and yellow-green)
  • Bad breath
Sinus Pain and Inflammation can make you miserable
