Chronic Sinus Pain Treatment
Runny nose, headache, facial pain, congestion – the list of symptoms goes on.
You’ve got a persistent cough that just won’t go away. In fact, it only seems to be getting worse, especially at night. You’re experiencing a diminished sense of smell and a persistent nasal drip. Hoarseness in your voice is impacting your ability to work. Headaches, a sore throat and facial pain add even more unwanted discomfort. You can’t sleep, feel rested, or enjoy normal daily activities. What’s causing all of this misery? The answer may be that you are suffering from sinusitis (or a chronic sinus infection).
When swelling and blockage in the sinus cavities (around the eyes and nose) occurs, the sinuses can become a breeding ground for bacteria and viruses, leading to infection. For most sufferers, this infection can be treated with first-line home remedies or OTC (over-the-counter) medications. If you find yourself experiencing lengthy periods of sinus pain or recurrent symptoms, you may be stuck in a cycle of chronic sinusitis and sinus infection.
