SYMPTOMS OF SINUSITIS

sinuses_-_welcome_page.gifSinusitis affects approximately 40 million people in this country each year. Experts believe it is one of the most common health related conditions. If you have ever had a "cold" or "allergy" attack that did not go away within a few days you have likely suffered from sinusitis. Normally, mucous produced in the sinus passages will drain into the nose. If you have a cold, virus or allergy attack that lingers long enough the sinuses become blocked by swollen tissue. This can lead to infection and symptoms. In general, because the symptoms of sinusitis can mimic those of colds and allergies you should see your doctor if you suffer from these attacks frequently or the symptoms do not disappear with treatment or return following treatment.

Possible Symptoms of Sinusitis:

  • Headache
  • Facial Pressure or Pain
  • Blocked/Stuffy Nasal Passage
  • Nasal Discharge: Thick or Thin/Watery, Discolored or Clear  
  • Post Nasal Drip
  • Cough
  • Loss or Change in Sense of Smell
  • Blocked, Stuffy Ears
  • Nose Bleeding
