Sinus Infection Symptoms - 5 Ways To Tell If You Have a Sinus Infection - Nurse's Tips!

 

Do you think you're having some sinus infection symptoms now? Or if you aren't sure if your symptoms are related to your sinuses, there are a few ways you can tell if they are. You may be in the beginning stages of sinusitis or a sinus infection or have had one developing for awhile.

 

These are some of the ways you can tell.

 

1. Yellowish discharge.   Do you have some nasal discharge or feel some discharge in the back of your throat?  Check it closely and see if it has a yellowish tinge.  If it's yellow you can be almost certain you have a sinus infection going on.  If the discharge is not yellow you may be in the early stages of sinusitis and you can stop it easier now before it gets into a full-blown sinus infection.  

 

2. Sinus headache. In the past, I don't think sinus headaches were recognized as much as they should have been.  It seems they were not recognized as such.  Many people have suffered with headaches that were labeled tension headaches or migraines.  A sinus headache can be one-sided on the top of the head, or across the forehead, for example.

 

A sinus headache may be harder to turn around if you don't catch it just as it's starting up.   The body goes into an automatic mode where it's harder to break the cycle. So if you suspect it might be your sinuses take some quick action. Try nasal irrigation for a sinus headache cure or to get sinus relief.

 

3. A stuffed up nose.  A stuffed up nose or sinus congestion can be from a sinus blockage - a back up behind the nose in the sinus cavities.  When the sinuses get blocked by dried up mucous, the one quart of mucous that moves through the sinuses each day gets backed up, causing a lot of pressure and possibly headache. Taking any medication as a sinus treatment, that dries up mucous, such as antihistamines, will harden it even more.

 

4. Irritated throat.  If you notice a slightly sore throat it may be from the sinus discharge draining down your throat.  You can try gargling with some warm water (about 8 oz.) with a half teaspoon of salt.  If this clears you in half an hour or so then you don't have a sore throat but just irritation from the sinus drainage.

 

5. Slight coughing off and on.  If you find you're coughing here and there throughout the day, you may have sinus drainage leaking down your throat and irritating your cough reflex. The coughing is to clear your throat and not in your lungs at this point.

 

Often suffering with these and other sinus infection symptoms can be thought to be a cold coming on. This is many times not the case.  The symptoms are confused very often with cold symptoms.  You can do something about it.  There are some great home remedy sinus cures today that are completely natural. Sinus sufferers no longer need to suffer as was not the case in the old days, nor have routine sinus surgery.  There are some good natural ways to get rid of sinus problems forever.
