Sinus Problems Q & A

What are sinuses?

Sinuses are hollow spaces located behind your eyes, nose, cheeks and forehead, and their primary function is to produce mucus that can trap dirt and germs and moisten and warm air before it enters the lungs. Since the sinuses are exposed to germs and allergens all day long, it's not hard to understand how they can develop chronic problems that can cause painful symptoms.

What causes sinus problems?

Sinus problems often develop when an infection develops in the sinuses. Because the sinuses are warm and moist – ideal growing conditions for most germs – getting rid of infections can be difficult. Other causes include blockages that don't allow sinuses to drain properly and a deviated septum, a condition that occurs when the tissue separating the nostrils on the inside leans to one side, blocking normal breathing. A very few people may have an extra sinus that causes crowding and blocks normal breathing.

What kinds of symptoms can sinus problems cause?

The most typical symptoms of a sinus problem include pain and pressure behind the eyes and nose, difficulty breathing, and a thick discharge from the nostrils. Many people with chronic sinus issues also snore.

How are sinus problems treated?

The type of treatment you need will depend on what's causing your sinus problems. Most sinus problems involve some sort of infection, which may need to be treated with oral antibiotics or nose drops. Sometimes, keeping the nasal cavities moist with a simple saline (saltwater) solution can help prevent sinus problems. If your septum is deviated, you may need surgery to correct the problem. Dr. Sheibani will perform a comprehensive evaluation to help identify both your problem and its cause so you can get the treatment you need.
