More than just annoying, symptoms of chronic sinusitis can have a big impact on our quality of life. “Sinusitis is an inflammation of the sinuses that affects 37 million people each year, making it one of the most common health problems in the U.S. with symptoms that include facial pain, teeth pain, headaches, fatigue, sore throat and bad breath,” according to an article in Business Wire. 

Debilitating Pain

If you’ve ever had a sinus infection you understand the pain. The difficulty breathing, congestion, facial pressure and tenderness can make life miserable. It can lead to headaches, fatigue, ear pain, cough, sore throat, irritability, and a poor night’s sleep. 

Over time, these symptoms can be detrimental to your mental, physical and emotional well being. 

Whether it is a runny nose, pain, or congestion, sleep can be almost impossible for those suffering with sinusitis. According to research published in Rhinology, chronic sinusitis also increases the risk of sleep apnea. In fact, a recent study revealed 64.7 percent of the patients with chronic sinusitis were diagnosed with sleep apnea. 

Research has also showed a link between sinusitis and cognitive dysfunction, depression, diabetes and anxiety 

A recent survey conducted by Qualtrics revealed the over 37 million people who suffer from chronic sinusitis, many of them fail to get relief through medical therapy. Fortunately, new technology has led to fast and effective procedure that can be performed in office by an ENT physician. Balloon Sinuplasty has been proven to be safe and has a fast recovery time. 

Balloon Sunuplasty is a minimally invasive endoscopic procedure during which a thin balloon catheter is inserted into the nose. The balloon is gradually inflated to relieve blockages and widen the sinus pathways. The goal of a balloon sinuplasty is to enlarge the opening of the sinuses, reduce blockages and improve sinus drainage.
