Having a sinus infection is one of the most painful things that a person can go through. Yes, there are some other things that are more painful, but the misery that seems to go through me when I have a sinus infection is almost beyond words. The first time I had a sinus infection I did not know the signs and symptoms of a sinus infection and I ended up letting it go on for much longer than it really should have, trying to deal with it using over the counter pain killers from the drug store and not knowing why it just kept getting worse. If you are suffering and wondering what the signs and symptoms of a sinus infection are then here is how I recognized the one I had.
Typically they will start with a pressure that is felt in the forehead, behind the eyes and at the bridge of the nose, as well as in the cheeks close to the nose. The pain can also travel into the ears as well as the mouth and teeth. The pressure either came with a headache, or was soon accompanied by a headache that great until it was almost unbearable. I also had other signs of infection, chills, fever and a general discomfort, when I felt it through the headache. So what did I do to overcome the problem?
There are many different natural cures for sinus infections, but for me I found that using a netipot every day did wonders. The netipot is a way of nasal irrigation that will clean your sinuses out and get rid of a lot of junk that just seems to impact and accumulate in the sinus cavities.
