If you ever had a sinus headache you know just how bad they c Tan be. They occur because the openings connecting the nose and sinuses are swollen closed. This causes pressure to develop that cause these painful headaches. There are many treatments on the market today, from over the counter medications to surgery, designed to reduce the swelling and relieve the pressure. 

The symptoms of sinus headaches are similar to other headaches, such as migraine headaches, making them difficult to diagnose. Your sinuses are located between your eyes, in the center of your head, in your forehead, and in your cheeks. Sinus headaches usually occur over these sinus cavities. 

Other Symptoms Associated With Sinus Headaches 

Sinus headaches are also related to nasal congestion and swelling, sinus infection, facial pain and pressure, swelling in the nose, and post nasal drip. 

This swelling makes it easy for bacteria to accumulate in the sinuses and cause an infection.

If the pain continues, gets worse, the symptoms do not get better after a week, or over the counter medication doesn’t work, it is time to see an Ears, Nose, & Throat Doctor.

If you are suffering from congestion or difficulty breathing, and over the counter medication isn’t helping, Balloon Sinuplasty may be an option that can improve your quality of life.

What Are The Benefits of Balloon Sinuplasty?

Fewer sinus headaches and infections

Sinus headaches and chronic sinus infections can be debilitating. They can last a couple of days to months. Facial pain with either a nose that won’t stop running or congestion you can’t seem to unblock, impacting every part of your life. Balloon Sinuplasty widens the sinuses pathway, which can reduce all these symptoms, as well as, chronic and acute sinus infections.

Reduced facial pressure and pain

If you’ve ever suffered from a sinus infection, you know how bad the facial pain, headache and pressure can be. It can be difficult to concentrate on anything but the pain behind your eyes, the bridge of your nose, pounding pain, fatigue or a combination of them all. Balloon Sinuplasty can alleviate much of this, helping you get back to living your life.

Improved quality of life

A study by the Oregon Health & Science University discovered 76 percent of sinus surgery patients felt their quality of life improved.

“This study demonstrates the real-world benefits of endoscopic sinus surgery for patients with chronic sinusitis,” confirmed the study’s chief investigator, Timothy L. Smith. “We now know that most patients who have this surgery experience an important and significant improvement in quality of life.”

Respondents reported their symptoms were vastly improved, they were less irritable, and they were able to led more productive lives.
