Sinus problems can ruin your day, but when they continue on and on, it is time to get real relief. Sometimes the symptoms of a sinus problem, which can include headaches, pain, pressure, and discharge, can seem to go away, only to come back the following week. You don’t have to suffer another season, relief is easier than you think.

The Symptoms of a Sinus Infection Include

Nasal congestion

The primary symptom of sinus infection is a stuffed up nose and congestion. It is also a classic sign of an allergic reaction or cold. When a sinus infection goes from being viral to bacterial, the congestion can get worse.

Green, yellow or grey mucus

Normal mucus is clear, if it changes color, you could have a sinus infection.  When your body is fighting the infection, white blood cells can cause the discoloration in the mucus. This happens in both bacterial sinus infections and colds.

Pressure and Pain on your sinuses, face, forehead, and eyes

All this extra mucus and congestion results in pressure on the nerves. Resulting in the pain and a ‘heavy’ feeling.

All that pressure build up can cause your teeth to hurt and your gums to ache.

Headache and loss of balance

The Eustachian tubes can be affected by the inflammation, which can alter your sense of balance. The unequal swelling, fatigue, and dehydration can also make you feel off balance. All the swelling, inflammation and pressure can cause a headache and muscle tension, especially in the neck and shoulders.
