Sphenoid Sinus Infection: Symptoms and Causes of Sinus


People usually think of a cold when having those regular symptoms; hardly when the headaches become unbearable they see a doctor and find out they suffer from sinusitis. Say bye to sinusitis problems means an inflammation of the sinus cavities, the symptoms are always worse than you expect and people spend millions every year trying to relief the symptoms.


General symptoms of sinus inflammation are: 1. Fever 2. Nasal congestion or runny nose 3. Loss of physical strength 4. Bad cough attacks especially at night.



  • Viruses, bacteria and fungus colonize our bodies without harming them.
  • When the body is weaken and in our case, sinuses are blocked, they become aggressive and can produce acute sinusitis. Embarassed



Every sinus cavity is connected with the nasal passages through a membrane layer which can get inflamed, and with the nose for air and mucus exchange. Inflammation together with sinus obstruction and secretions blocked inside the sinuses lead to an increased pressure and to the apparition of powerful headaches. Sinus attacks can also be caused by the swollen membrane that blocks air from going into the air passages.


Symptom of Chronic Sinusitis is a Persistant Cough -- With Sinusitis





Sinusitis pains have different characteristics depending on the involved sinus; a general type of pain is the one coming up in the morning when you get off bed. Aches caused by bending the head forward are specific for frontal sinusitis; pains in the upper teeth, upper maxilla and cheeks are signs for maxillary sinus infection. The ethmoidal sinusitis causes pain between the eyes and swollen eyelids, loss of the smell and airless nose. Chronic sinus contamination is a more rare condition and gives deeper pains in the head, earaches and pain in the neck.

Sinuses are small air cavities located around the nose, known as Para nasal sinuses, situated inside the head bones. The frontal sinus lies right up the eyes in the brow area, the maxillary sinuses are inside the cheekbones, the ethmoid sinus is localized between the eyes and behind it, and the sphenoid sinus lies behind the eyes in the upper region. Very Happy.

Anyone Who's Ever Suffered from Sinusitis Will Confess to Having Had Bouts of Headaches

However, it may not always be caused by sinusitis. An interesting case was written by a certain 'DP' to Doctor Vincent Martin detailing the hardships 'he' bore in connection with headaches seemingly caused by sinusitis. The patient has consulted with different specialists but still the condition persists. Surprised.

Undergoing a comprehensive diagnosis with a competent physician will yield an accurate assessment of your condition. Great is the discomfort suffered by people afflicted with sinus infections and seeking medical help as soon as possible is very much advised. If there is the slightest possibility of you not getting to understand the matter that is written here on Nasal Sinus, we have some advice to be given. Use a dictionary!



  • There are reports that people who suffer from this headache found an improvement after having been treated of their nasal and sinus disorders.
  • These are the ones who have undergone treatments that included antihistamines, decongestants and nasal sprays containing steroids.
  • These medications often improve nasal congestion and/or drainage of the sinuses.
  • This article serves as a representative for the meaning of Sinuses in the library of knowledge.
  • Let it represent knowledge well. Surprised



A primer of mechanisms are responsible for triggering this effect. Chronic nasal or sinus disease are said to lead to headaches through these mechanisms theoretically. One of these would be through the obstruction of the nasal passage when the membranes of the nose swell or through abnormalities in the bone structure of the nose. There are instances when the drainage of our sinuses are also plugged making way for changes in the air pressure in the sinuses and this causes the pain we perceive as headaches. This is the other mechanism which contributes to the headache effect of sinus infections. Very Happy.

However, I have to agree with Doctor Martin that the sinus infection per se is not the real cause for these headaches. There may be instances when it will be the cause but oftentimes they only serve as trigger for the headaches which might be caused by other disorders. Fact is, these headaches that are attributed to sinus infections may be migraine or other forms of vascular or "tension" headaches that also give pain in the forehead and around the eyes.



  • There is evidence linking sinus infections to the headaches being felt by people who suffer from the disorder.
  • Headache specialists agree that sinus infections can trigger headaches.
  • Slang is one thing that has not been included in this composition on Sinus Infection.
  • It is because slang only induces bad English, and loses the value of English.



Large Amount of the Population Suffer from Sinusitis Every Year

A sinus is a cavity in the skull which is used to make the skull lighter, give room for the skull to grow, and to cool down the inhaled air. There are four types of sinuses in humans which include the maxillary, ethmoid, sphenoid, and frontal sinuses. The maxillary sinus cavity is located below the eye and to the side of the nose below the cheeks. The ethmoid sinus and the sphenoid sinus are some of the most functional sinuses and are located between the eyes and under the nose. The frontal sinus cavity is located in the middle of the forehead.

There are Many Forms of Treatment for a Sinusitis Infection

Nasal sprays are one common treatment. Nasal sprays work by distributing saline solution up into the sinus cavities. Nasal sprays are meant to moisten the cilia so that the trapped bacteria and mucus can be washed out. The problem with nasal sprays however is that they have large particle sizes that cannot make it past the inflammation at the opening of the sinus cavities and up to the sinusitis infection. Oral antibiotics and other oral medications are also frequently used treatments. Oral antibiotics work on infections by flowing through the blood stream to the infected area. Oral antibiotics are usually ineffective when it comes to sinusitis infections due to the fact that there are only a small amount of blood vessels in the sinus cavities which makes it difficult for an efficient amount of antibiotic, along with anti-fungals and anti-inflammatories, to make it to the sinus infection. Another treatment that may be used is irrigation. Irrigation, like nasal sprays, is meant to moisten the cilia so that it can function properly. Also like nasal sprays, it is difficult for it to make it through the inflammation and to the sinuses. Irrigation is also usually a very messy treatment.

There are Many Symptoms Which can Occur With Sinusitis

Frequently, a person may experience cough, congestion, facial pain and pressure, green nasal discharge, and postnasal drip. When the sinusitis infection lasts for twelve or more weeks it is considered chronic and can have additional symptoms such as loss of sense of taste and smell and the person may also become fatigued.

The Sinuses can Cause Many Problems

The most common problem is a sinusitis infection. A sinusitis infection is caused by a blockage of bacteria and mucus in the sinus cavities. The blockage begins usually with a cold or allergy. The sinus cavity lining becomes swollen when a cold or allergy exists. When bacteria get into the sinus cavities, they attack the swollen lining which then causes greater inflammation. The cilia are tiny hairs in the sinuses which are used to flush out bacteria and mucus. When the inflammation from the bacteria occurs, the cilia can no longer flush it out therefore the bacteria and mucus become trapped and the sinusitis infection begins.

Our Sinuses Have Important Functions and It is Important to Keep Them Clear from Infection

A sinusitis infection can become an inconvenience in many ways and also may cause future problems for the sinus cavities. It is best to take care of a sinusitis infection at the beginning and to prevent it from becoming chronic and from leading to surgery.
