How Seasonal Sinus Pressure May be More Than Just Allergies – Sinusitis

Do you suffer from “seasonal” allergies that seem to transcend every season? Do you feel the ache of sinus pressure all year round? Have your symptoms escalated to where your sinuses become swollen and even lead to on-going sinus infections? Your allergies, may not be allergies at all, but in fact Chronic Sinusitis.

What is chronic sinusitis?

Displaying continuous inflammation and tenderness of the sinuses, Chronic Sinusitis is defined by an assortment of symptoms, such as foul breath, chronic cough, exhaustion, headaches, sinus pressure, tenderness surrounding and behind the eyes, toothache, nasal discharge, raw swollen throat, postnasal drip, and frequent infections.

Sinus treatment & management

While minor and infrequent allergy related sinus infections can be effectively treated with antibiotics or medication, surgery should become an option to explore once the patient’s symptoms do not lessen and start to hinder effect their daily life and productivity.

The surgical answer

Endoscopic Sinus Surgery is a surgical option for Chronic Sinusitis. During the procedure, an endoscope is inserted into the nose enabling an internal view of the nasal passageways. Once there is a clear view, all blockage is surgically eradicated, emptying the sinuses so that the patient can finally experience relief.
