Signs and Symptoms

“What the mind dwells upon, the body acts upon.”

~ Denis Waitley

Some of the common signs and symptoms of sinusitis are experienced more frequently and universally than others.

  • Chronic, runny nose
  • Thick, yellow-green mucus caused by infection
  • Postnasal drip (mucus down the back of throat)
  • Difficult to breathe through the nose due to nasal congestion
  • Loss or reduced sense of smell
  • Swelling around eyes and cheeks
  • Heaviness of head when bending forward
  • Headache
  • Facial pain and pressure (forehead, cheeks, nose, and behind eyes)
  • Tooth pain occurs when infection in a tooth extends to maxillary sinuses, located near upper teeth
  • Bad breath (halitosis)
  • Extreme fatigue unrelieved by rest and accompanying irritability
  • Ear discomfort because the middle ear space is lined by the same mucous membrane as the nose and sinuses
  • Coughing as your body tries to clear the mucus going down your throat
  • Sore throat due to irritation caused by postnasal drip
  • Hoarseness due to inflammation of the vocal cords caused by postnasal mucus
  • Insomnia and/or other sleep disturbances
  • Fever during acute stage
  • Dizziness or lightheadedness
  • Foggy headedness and difficult to concentrate
  • Depression and irritability
