Chronic Sinusitis & Deviated Septum

Chronic sinusitis is one of the most commonly diagnosed chronic illnesses. According to the CDC, in 2010 29.8 million adults were diagnosed with chronic sinusitis.

It is an inflammation of the sinus lining which lasts for three months or more, mostly caused by infections (bacterial, viral, or microbial). The structure of the sinus openings and blockages of the nasal passages can also lead to this condition. If there is improper drainage, or closure of the sinus openings, mucus will not drain properly. This can lead to inflammation and possible infection of the sinuses.

Symptoms of Chronic Sinusitis include:

  • Nasal and/or facial congestion, pain, or fullness
  • Headaches
  • Night-time coughing
  • Inability or reduced ability to breathe through the nose
  • Yellow or green nasal discharge
  • Toothaches
  • Fatigue
  • Sore throat
