What is Chronic Sinusitis and Do I Have It?

Chronic sinusitis is present when your sinus infection symptoms, which should resolve in anywhere from seven days to several weeks, continue for more than 10-12 weeks. Symptoms that can continue to affect your life after several months due to chronic sinusitis include:

  • Sinus pressure
  • Headaches
  • Inability to breathe out of your nose
  • Puffy eyes
  • Bad breath
  • Coughing
  • Nasal discharge

When you continue to suffer from the symptoms of a sinus infection, the viruses, bacteria, or fungus that exist in your sinuses will continue to grow and take a toll on your health and wellness. Until the blockages or root cause preventing your sinuses from draining are cleared, your sinus infection may continue for months or even years.

Diagnosing Your Chronic Sinusitis is the First Step Towards Relief

Before your chronic sinusitis can be resolved by an Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) doctor, the specialist must get a full picture of your condition and make a diagnosis. Since there are a variety of causes that lead to chronic sinusitis, an important part of the diagnosis will be finding the cause. The cause of your chronic sinusitis will help your ENT determine the right treatment for you.

Lubbock Sinus Doctor begins the diagnosis process by conducting a full examination. This includes feeling around your face and sinuses, asking for and analyzing your symptoms, looking in your nose, and taking images of what’s going on behind the scenes with a scan. Depending on your condition, allergy testing and sampling of your sinus discharge may be conducted in your examination.
