Suffering from Chronic Sinus Infections?
Sinusitis is the inflammation of the sinus lining due to bacterial or viral infection. Symptoms of sinusitis include facial discomfort, nasal discharge, headaches, fatigue, and nasal congestion.
Over 37 million people in America suffer from sinusitis every year. Sinusitis is one of the most common health problems in the country today, even more prevalent than asthma and heart disease. Sinusitis has greater impact on a patient’s quality of life than other common conditions like chronic back pain. The symptoms of sinusitis do not only affect the physical and functional well being of a person, but can cause emotional problems as well.
Types of Sinusitis
Sinusitis may occur in two main ways: acute and chronic.
Sinusitis often begins from a cold, an allergy attack, or irritation from pollutants in the environment. These conditions can lead to nasal pressure, congestion, fever, and a runny nose. If these symptoms persist for more than a few days, you may develop a bacterial infection or acute sinusitis. Acute sinusitis is the most common type of sinusitis. Recurring acute sinusitis (more than four times a year) means that you may have a more serious case. If the symptoms last for more than 12 weeks, then you may have developed chronic sinusitis.
