Sinusitis Is the Illness

Sinusitis plagues everyone at some point in their life. If a rare instance of random sinus strikes you, you can remedy yourself with some over-the-counter medication. That person may or may not get sinusitis again.

It is when you have recurrences of sinusitis that makes life miserable. You may have ongoing sinusitis year-round, and it never goes away. In this case, you will have to come and see one of our esteemed doctors to find out the underlying cause of your sinusitis, as there are many reasons why you keep getting sinusitis.

  • Virus
  • Bacteria Infection
  • Allergies
  • Autoimmune Reactions
  • Deviated Septum
  • Weakened Immune System

You may know you have an infection but are unsure what kind. Sinusitis presents specific symptoms. 

  • Decreased sense of taste and smell 
  • Nasal Discharge
  • Stuffy Nose
  • Congestion
  • Swelling around eyes, nose, cheeks, forehead
  • Ear Pain
  • Facial Pain
  • Headache
  • Sore Throat
  • Coughing

The treatment for sinusitis depends on the underlying cause. Treatment can range from an over-the-counter remedy to surgery for those with a deviated septum. Depending on the cause, some treatment options could be ordering an antibiotic, inhaled steroids, a decongestant, and surgery but only if indicated and if it significantly improves your health.

We see great success in using many treatment options for sinusitis to eliminate this illness. Please know that surgical intervention is the last resort and is rare indeed.

Sinusitis is a painful, pesky illness that diminishes your quality of life. It is not fun to have a sinus headache and constant runny nose. These symptoms take away your energy, and you cannot do your best at work, home, or play.

Sinusitis can interfere with your sleep pattern and rob you of a good night's sleep. Lack of sleep spawns a whole new set of health concerns. Never let sinusitis take over your life and sleep. Let us help you conquer these nasty symptoms and improve your health.
