Sinus pain is usually due to pressure being applied to a sinus wall.
This can occur for a variety of reasons:
- Nasal swelling, due to an infection or an allergic reaction may place pressure on the adjoining sinuses.
- A build-up of mucus within a sinus may be to blame.
- Occasionally a vacuum can develop in a sinus because of a swollen mucus membrane. This can cause a particularly intense pain.
Most people who experience sinusitis have more than one infected sinus at any given time, symptoms do not always indicate exactly which locations are inflamed.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF SINUSITIS
Depending on which sinuses are affected and why, a sufferer will experience different symptoms of sinusitis.
Early morning headache after waking is often a sign of sinus trouble. Inflammation of the frontal sinuses causes pain when the forehead is touched at the brow.
The cheeks become equally sore to touch if the maxillary sinuses are inflamed. These sinuses can also cause the teeth and jawbone to ache.
More generally, sinusitis can cause a range of symptoms including the following:
- Night cough
- Runny nose
- Nasal congestion
- Post-nasal drip
