Sinusitis is characterized by inflammation of the sinus lining, often caused by bacterial or viral infections and structural issues such as ostial (sinus opening) blockage. Symptoms encompass nasal congestion, facial discomfort, nasal discharge, headache, and fatigue.

Sinusitis impacts 37 million people in the U.S. annually, ranking as one of the most prevalent health issues. This condition surpasses the occurrence of heart disease and asthma, significantly influencing the quality of life, more than chronic back pain or congestive heart failure. Symptoms can have a profound impact on physical, functional, and emotional well-being.

Types of Sinusitis

There are two primary categories of sinusitis: acute and chronic. Typically initiated by a cold, allergy attack, or environmental irritation, sinusitis symptoms may resolve on their own. However, persistent symptoms may indicate bacterial infection or acute sinusitis. If symptoms endure for 12 weeks or more, chronic sinusitis may be diagnosed.

Symptoms of Sinusitis

Sinusitis can bring about discomfort with a range of symptoms, which may include:

  • Facial pain, pressure, congestion, or a feeling of fullness
  • Difficulty breathing through the nose
  • Discharge of yellow or green mucus from the nose
  • Teeth pain
  • Loss of the sense of smell or taste
