A runny nose. Stuffiness. Headache. Watery eyes. All of these are signs of sinus infections, also referred to as sinusitis — a problem that affects more than 30 million U.S. adults, or 12.5% of the adult population.
Sometimes the battle with sinus allergies seems endless. Day after day, the suffering brought on by the squeezing pressure in your face, and the constant stream of snot dripping from your nose is enough to drive a person a little crazy.
Headaches are an unfortunately common problem for millions of people. They cause pain and discomfort and can even mean lost time at work and with friends and family.
There’s almost nothing more miserable than a sinus headache. The congestion, the pressure, and the pain make you feel as if your head is stuffed with cotton and that you are swimming underwater.
We can all agree that having a stuffed-up nose is the worst. On even the most beautiful of spring days, nasal allergies bring the drip and squeeze that seriously rain on our parade.
