What is Sinusitis?

Sinusitis, also known as Chronic Sinus Infection, is a recurring condition that causes the membranes lining your sinuses to become swollen and inflamed. Inflammation in the sinuses prevents the natural draining of mucus because the swollen membranes actually block the nasal passages. The pressure you feel in your sinus cavities is caused by the backup of mucus that is not allowed to drain properly.

Chronic Sinusitis Symptoms

Symptoms may include any combination of the following: nasal congestion, facial pain, headache, night-time coughing, general malaise, thick green or yellow discharge, feeling of facial "fullness" or "tightness" that may worsen when bending over, dizziness, aching teeth, and/or halitosis.

Treatment Options

If you suffer with Chronic Sinus Infections, treatment can be frustrating--going back and forth to your primary care physician or urgent care center. Typically, you are prescribed antibiotics and steroid sprays, but it just keeps coming back. It might make sense to see a specialist to see if you are a candidate for a minimally invasive procedure called Balloon Sinus Dilation.
