There are a number of symptoms associated with sinus conditions. Nearly all of these can be helped by using sinus pressure points. In the event that they don’t, you can always look to more conventional sinus treatment. You will know a lot of these, but some may surprise you. In no particular order of severity here are the sinus symptoms:
Sinus Symptom 1: Pressure
This can be felt, depending on which sinus is affected, in the face, behind the cheeks, between the nose or in the forehead. You may also experience pressure in the ears if the eustachian tubes become blocked up. Pressure in the head is also a common indication of sinus problems.
Sinus Symptom 2: Discharge
One of the less pleasant symptoms of sinus conditions is the nasal discharge that comes along with it. If you have a bad case of sinusitis for example, the discharge may be a nasty shade of green and can be particularly foul smelling. Remember that healthy sinuses will produce quite a large amount of mucus each day, although it shouldn’t smell awful and runs clear in healthy people.
Sinus Symptom 3: Pain
As sinuses become clogged or inflamed, they tend to produce pain, beginning on one side of the head and typically spreading to both sides. You may also experience headaches that tend to intensify when bent over. If the infection spread through to the back of the nasal passageways you may experience ear aches. Toothache is also a commonly reported condition associated with infected sinuses. If you have a sinus infection and experience other symptoms, hold off going to the dentist, instead use some of the sinus pressure points and you might save yourself some money.
Sinus Symptom 4: Loss Of Smell And Taste
Unfortunately food and drink can become rather tasteless. Taste and smell, in my experience are one of the final things to return to absolute normal.
Sinus Symptom 5: Sneezing And Coughing
Sinus Symptom 6: Burning Sensations
You may feel a burning throughout the nose and over the face.
Sinus Symptom 7: Swelling
Your face may become puffy and swell up, especially in the case of allergies.
Sinus Symptom 8: Dizziness And Vertigo
This is especially common in cases where the sinuses become blocked and the eustachian tubes get backed up and can’t drain effectively.
Sinus Symptom 9: Loss Of Hearing
Mostly this will be temporary but it will likely be accompanied by pressure in the ears and head as the eustachian tubes become blocked. When I get bad attacks it often feels as though I’m stuck underwater, trying to listen to people speak to me.
Sinus Symptom 10: Tinnitus
This is the worst for me. Since my sinus problems began 3 years ago I’ve had 24/7 tinnitus. This is otherwise known as ringing in the ears.
Sinus Symptom 11: Popping Ears
Another thing that affects me, my ears tend to pop as I move my jaw around. This is due to the eustachian tubes being clogged up and as you move your jaw around, the pressure is released, creating the ‘popping’ sensation and sound.
Sinus Symptom 12: Stiff Jaw
Sinus Symptom 13: Grinding Teeth
At night, you may find yourself grinding your teeth. Get a mouth guard and learn to control your breathing in the day. A breathing regime should really help out a lot of things in your life, sinus conditions one of them.
Sinus Symptom 14: Snoring
As with a lot of respiratory conditions, sinus conditions can cause difficulties breathing and snoring is an unfortunate result for a lot of us.
Sinus Symptom 15: Itching
The worst type of itching because it’s almost impossible to scratch, especially if in really deep. It usually feels as though your face is itching but you can’t find exactly where. Sinus pressure points are great for dealing with itchy sinuses.
Sinus Symptom 16: Post Nasal Drip
This is basically the term for a lot of extra mucus draining down the back of the throat. This is a common result of sinus conditions.
Serious Sinus Problems
If the problem doesn’t go away, it may develop into something more serious. This is especially the case where the infection reaches parts of sinuses that go up near the brain. If this happens you can risk the infection reaching the brain and going into the blood stream. Meningitis is just one of the conditions that can result from this. It’s uncommon but keep it in mind that if you’re maintaining sinus conditions with medication or sinus pressure points that the infection could still be there.
