Sinus Pain

Suffering From Sinusitis Pain?

Swelling and blocked drainage lead to stagnation and infection.

Chronic Sinus Infection Pain

In healthy sinuses, mucus drains out and air is able to properly circulate. Sinusitis occurs when swelling (inflammation) of the sinuses causes blockages that prevent mucous from draining. This can lead to bacteria, viruses, and fungus growth inside the sinuses, leading to infection.

Know the Signs of Sinus Infection

At Southern New Mexico Sinus Center, we believe that every patient is unique and requires a personal approach to treatment. There are three types of sinusitis:

1. Acute Sinusitis

Patients suffering from acute sinusitis will notice that symptoms persist for 10 to 12 days, and resolve in four weeks or less.

Swelling and sinus drainage can be miserable

2. Chronic Sinusitis

When symptoms persist for more than 3 months, this is known as chronic sinusitis. Symptoms include fever, persistent nasal discharge that is often green or yellow, a daytime cough which worsens at night, bad breath, or waking up with puffy eyes.

3. Recurrent Acute Sinusitis

Multiple (four or more) episodes or outbreaks in a year indicate recurrent acute sinusitis. Sufferers will experience periods of relief, followed by another outbreak.

"When I got my procedure done, it was very easy."

When I got my procedure done, it was very easy. It was actually during our baseball season, and I ended up missing just one day of coaching and work. And within a couple of days, everything was back to normal. And within a few weeks, I felt a big, big difference! So overall, the procedure was very easy, I had very little down time, and being as active as I am, I think that’s a big plus for anybody who’s going to undertake this procedure.

"My relief of symptoms after sinuplasty have been amazing."

My relief of symptoms after sinuplasty have been amazing. I used to struggle breathing, falling asleep, energy level, fatigue. Now I have been able to continue my lifestyle like a normal person. I am back at the gym, I feel healthy. I get told a lot by people how wonderful I look, because they saw me through this period of time and how it affected me. This is something that I would highly recommend to everybody. Sinuplasty was definitely the best thing for me and my lifestyle.

"I would recommend this procedure to anyone who had sinus problems."

Before the procedure, I could not taste anything. I could not taste my food, I could not smell things. Everything was just "blah." And after the procedure, I was able to, once again, smell most things and taste most things. I would recommend this procedure to anyone who had  sinus problems..I would do it again, most definitely.

"My quality of life has drastically improved."

After the procedure, I'm feeling now like I'm more able to wake up in the morning and get up and get moving quickly and exercise and not have to wait around a couple of hours to feel better. I am rested and ready to take on the day. My quality of life has drastically improved. I used to be a full time teacher, so I am now re-entering the workforce. I would definitely recommend this procedure to anyone who's suffering with chronic sinus issues and allergies. It's life changing.
