Swelling? Stagnation? Trouble Breathing?

Know the Symptoms of Chronic Sinusitis

Sinusitis is a painful condition which occurs when the sinuses swell. When you have healthy sinuses, mucus drains and air is able to circulate, allowing you to breathe easily and comfortably.

When swelling occurs, mucus is blocked from draining, which can lead to bacteria, viruses, and fungus growth inside the sinuses, causing pain and discomfort.

Sinusitis symptoms include:

  • Bad breath or loss of smell
  • Nasal discharge
  • A persistent cough
  • Headache and facial pain
  • Fatigue
  • Congestion
  • Sore throat

There are three types of sinusitis which may affect patients: acute, chronic or recurrent acute.

Acute sinusitis symptoms persist for 10 to 12 days, and resolve in four weeks or less.

Chronic sinusitis occurs when symptoms persist for longer than 3 months. Symptoms of chronic sinusitis include persistent green or yellow nasal discharge, fever, waking up with puffy eyes, and a cough which worsens at night.

Recurrent acute sinusitis sufferers will experience four or more episodes or outbreaks in a single year. Periods of relief are followed by another outbreak.
