What are sinuses?
Sinuses are hollow air spaces in the human body. When people say,”I’m having a sinus attack,” they are usually referring to symptoms in one or more of four pairs of cavities, or sinuses,known as paranasal sinuses. These cavities, located within the skull or bones of the head surrounding the nose, include the:
- Frontal sinuses over the eyes in the brow area
- Maxillary sinuses inside each cheekbone
- Ethmoid sinuses just behind the bridge of the nose and between the eyes
Sphenoid sinuses behind the ethmoids in the upper region of the nose and behind the eyes.
Each sinus has an opening into the nose for the free exchange of air and mucus, and each is joined with the nasal passages by a continuous mucous membrane lining. Therefore, anything that causes a swelling in the nose-an infection, an allergic reaction, or an immune reaction-can also affect the sinuses. Air trapped within a blocked sinus, along with pus or other secretions, may cause pressure on the sinus wall. The result is the occasional intense pain of a sinus attack. Similarly, when air is prevented from entering a paranasal sinus by a swollen membrane at the opening, a vacuum can be created that also causes pain.
What are the symptoms of sinusitis?
- The location of your sinus pain depends on which sinus is affected.
- Headache when you wake up in the morning is typical of a sinus problem.
- Pain in your forehead over the frontal sinuses when it touched may indicate that your frontal sinuses are inflamed.
Heaviness in the head while bending
Infection in the maxillary sinuses can cause your upper jaw and teeth to ache and your cheeks to become tender to touch. Since the ethmoid sinuses are near the tear ducts in the corner of the eyes, inflammation of these cavities often causes swelling of the eyelids and tissues around your eyes, and pain between your eyes. Ethmoid inflammation can also cause tenderness when the sides of your nose are touched, a loss of smell, and a stuffy nose.
Although the sphenoid sinuses are less frequently affected,infection in this area can cause earaches, neck pain, and deep aching at the top of your head.Most people with sinusitis, however, have pain or tenderness in several locations, and their symptoms usually do not clearly indicate which sinuses are inflamed.
Symptoms of sinusitis can include :
- A cough that may be more severe at night
- Runny nose or nasal congestion
