Sinus Headaches: Why You’re in Pain and What to Do

The sinuses are cavities in the forehead, cheekbones, and behind the bridge of the nose.They are air cavities.However, when there is an excess of mucus in the body, the sinuses fill with this fluid.This, in turn, inflames the sinus cavity linings, stimulating the immune system to trigger the production of more mucus.The tubes that clear the sinuses can become blocked due to the mucus present.Alternatively, they swell shut due to the inflammation.When this happens, the sinuses cannot drain, and the mucus inside them causes a buildup of pressure.This is what causes a sinus headache. Sinus headaches can be severe, and they are often confused with migraines.However, once you know where your sinuses are, you can see if those areas are the origin of your headache.If they are, then it’s most likely you have a sinus headache, not a migraine.

Sinus Pressure: Causes and Treatments

Pain in the sinuses is common during a sinusitis episode.You have four sinus cavities. The first is the frontal sinus, located above the eyes, which is situated in the skull’s frontal bone. The second is the maxillary sinus, located below the eyes and under the cheekbones. The third sinus is the ethmoid sinus.You’ll find this sinus in the face’s ethmoid bone, which separates the eyes from the nose. The fourth sinus is the sphenoid sinus.You’ll find this sinus cavity at the base of your skull in the sphenoid bone. The sinuses connect to the back of the nose, allowing mucus to drain from the body.When these ducts become inflamed, the sinuses cannot drain properly. The mucus that cannot get out of the sinuses lies inside them, causing a sensation of pressure.If the linings of your sinuses become infected due to the stagnant mucus, the inflammation causes the body to respond by producing more mucus and other fluids. This immune response leads to an increase i [...]

What causes middle-ear infections?

Pain, pressure or maybe even discomfort that goes into the jaw or neck. Either way, it feels rotten and it’s usually what we all know as an ear infection. Sometimes, it can be deep inside the eustachian tube. However, sometimes it’s in the middle of the ear. So what really causes middle ear infections or what’s also known as Otitis Media? A huge factor in middle ear infections is that of an upper respiratory tract infection. Any build-up that occurs in the eustachian tube, such as mucus from a cough or cold can get stuck or build up in the pipe that runs between ear and throat. This then causes swelling, irritation, and inflammation. Because the mucus has nowhere to go, this then causes an infection to build up as it spreads into the middle of the ear.      An enlarged adenoid (or soft tissue), can also be the cause of a middle ear infection. If this is a little too big for the tube, then an infection can occur. There is a cure for this though [...]

How Sinus Treatment Improves the Quality of Life

This can serve as a breeding site for bacteria and germs causing sinus infection or sinusitis.

How allergies can affect your ears, nose, and throat

Allergies are quite common to a large number of people including millions of Americans. Allergy is a condition that occurs when one’s immune system reacts to a specific substance like it is a foreign object or an intruder. This substance is known as allergen.   The immune system will then produce some immunoglobins or antibodies that recognize the allergens whenever they are introduced into the body. This causes a chain of reactions such as vasodilatation (dilation of the blood vessels) and the production of an inflammatory chemical substance called histamine. Histamine is responsible for the allergy symptoms such as sneezing, feeling of fullness in the nose, runny nose, scratchy throat, itchy eyes, apnea etc. Nasal allergies are more commonly known as Hay Fever.  The allergens (substances that trigger allergy response) are mainly pollens, some certain food substances, dust, pet dander, feathers, molds, airborne pollutants and even drugs like penicillin.

THE ABCs of ENT

The Ears, nose and throat are very important structures of the upper respiratory tract. The ears are used in hearing and balance, the nose is not only for smelling but may also affect your sense of taste to a considerable extent. It can also act as a defense to prevent germs and bacteria from invading the body. The throat serves as a route of passage for air and food. The throat is also the organ used in speech formation because it contains the larynx (voice box). Impairment in any of these organs can affect the others. Sometimes an ear pain may cause difficulty in swallowing and nasal obstruction may cause headaches. Some hearing disorders are not even related to the ear. The symptoms are also intertwined and may require a specialist to know the underlying cause. This is due to the fact these organs share the same mucous lining.  Otolaryngology or more popularly called the ENT is the intensive study of the ears, nose, throat and other related structures of the head and ne [...]
