Symptoms Of Sinusitis

From coughing all night because of the continuous, thick postnasal drip running down the back of your throat to a throbbing earache because of trapped fluid to the excruciating pain of pounding headaches to chronic hoarseness from clearing your throat repeatedly, sinus discomfort is all too familiar to millions.

Besides suffering from headache pain and pressure, postnasal drip, and congestion, people experience other problem with sinus disease. You may achiness and fatigue, fever, ear pain, or a throat so swollen that eating or breathing is difficult. Or your teeth may hurt, making you think you have dental problems but you have sinusitis.

A thirty seven years old patient went to two different dentists seekings relief for throbbing upper molars. “About three of my molars started hurting after I got over a horrible head cold,” he said. “At first it was a dull ache, but after a few days, my whole jaw was throbbing, my head was pounding, and i had a fever.”

After agreeing that his teeth wer perfectly healthy, the second dentist referred him to an ear, and throat doctor ENT. The ENT diagnosed him with an acute sinus infection and started him on antibiotics and a decongestant.

Fortunately for him, the dentist referred him to the specialist, and he got an accurate diagnosis and treatment, within a week his pain has subsided. Sadly in some situations, people go for months thinking they hava a “bad tooth” or “tension or migraine” headaches, when, in fact, they are suffering from sinusitis.

It can also happen the other way around: an infected upper tooth can sometimes lead to a sinus infection.

    Gotta chime in here, sorry can’t keep my big mouth shut! Sinus infections are no fun at all and every case is different but I always say start w/ more natural remedies first. Nasal rinses, neti pot for example.
    And then of course keep in contact w/ your doctor as if things progress you might have chronic sinusitis. And then it’s a ct scan and the choices are usually balloon sinuplasty or endoscopic sinus surgery.
    Stay informed and Take Care!

    Interested in an all-natural relief for allergy, sinus and headaches? Sinol-M has worked for me. I no longer get sinus headaches or sinus congestion. I can breathe clearly out of my nose and don’t have that annoying post nasal drip anymore. There’s no rebound or side effects and haven’t gotten a sinus infection since I’ve been using it for over 9 months. It has improved the quality of my days!
