If you’ve ever had a sinus headache, that pain and pressure that build up behind your eyes, forehead and cheeks, or the stuffy nose, snoring, fatigue and an achy feeling, that can make your life miserable.

Other symptoms include runny nose, congestion, swelling around your face, fever, pressure in the ears, and the pain gets worse when you bend over.

Many people who suffer from sinusitis often say it feels like a migraine or a pounding tension headache.

Why Does It Happen?

Your sinuses are small spaces filled with air located behind the bridge of your nose and, inside you cheekbones and forehead. They start to swell from an infection or allergic reaction, which produces mucus.

The inflammation blocks them from draining properly. Causing the onset of pain, pressure, and other symptom.

Sinus problems can stem from a number of things, from an infection, allergic reaction or nasal polyps. Treatment of any infection should be a priority.

Nasal polyps are soft, fleshy, non-cancerous growths in the lining of the nasal passages or sinuses. They can be caused by recurring infections, chronic inflammation, sensitivity to certain drugs, allergies, and immune disorders. They typically cause the nasal passages to become inflamed, causing the same symptoms.

Get Relief From All Your Symptoms

If you’re anything like me, I’ve tried just about every over the counter medication to try and get relief from my sinus headaches, antihistamines or decongestants, but the symptoms keep coming back.  That’s when I found out there are more permanent solutions.

Balloon Sinuplasty is a safe and very effective treatment for chronic sinusitis. It 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.

Treatments for nasal polyps include steroid tablets or steroid nasal spray for patients with smaller polyps. For larger polyps, surgery may be required.

Getting relief for me started when I visited Orlando Ear, Nose & Throat. With an exam, diagnosis, and treatment, I am breathing easy and pain free!
