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.

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.

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

About 13 months ago I began having problems with my sinuses. I was experiencing some swelling and drainage problems that continued for a period of time and then I realized that I was having trouble sleeping at night. Not being able to concentrate, like I normally do, and that was affecting me at work...

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.
