Here are the 10 most common symptoms of sinus infection. Does any of these sound like the problems you are having right now?
- Pain and/or pressure in the area of your eyes or forehead. Or pain in the very top of your head – especially if the pain gets more intense when you bend over or move your head quickly.
- Sinus drainage. This can be any color from clear to greenish-yellow or even bloody. And it may not drain out your nose. Often your sinuses will drain down the back of your throat-and you swallow it.
- Nausea or upset stomach-often caused by swallowing the drainage.
- Fatigue-Even when you should feel rested. This is the sneakiest one of all. This is the one that creeps up on you slowly and unnoticed. If you are living with the symptoms on this list you are certainly not reaching your true potential at work, family life or at rest.
- Blocked nasal or sinus passages. Especially at night. Are you sleeping with your mouth open because you cant breathe through your nose when you lie down?
- Do you have a poor sense of smell or taste? If you are staying clogged up with mucous I bet you do.
- Bad breath. Think about it this way-your senses of smell and taste are really messed up right now-and you can still smell and taste your bad breath. What does everybody else think about your breath right now?
- Ear pain. It’s not uncommon for a bad sinus infection to spread to your inner ears.
- Sore Throat.
- Chills, fever or general malaise. Are you feeling generally crappy?
If you are suffering from any of the sinus infection symptoms above you have my support. I really do know how you feel. I had chronic sinus infections for literally decades.
I had decided to just “live” with my symptoms, until they got so intense that they cost me my job-and nearly my home.
I had gotten so sick I couldn’t hold a job, or support my family. I was scared. And miserable.
It was a real-life-up-close look at losing everything. I am thankful to be healthy again.
The thing that gave me back control over my life was the knowledge that my chronic sinus infections were caused by a fungal (yeast) infection.
And in case you don’t already know-Antibiotics treat bacterial, not fungal infections. This means that even when you have just finished that course of antibiotics your Doctor gave you, the real fungal cause of your problem is as alive as ever up there in your head. And just like a bad pop singer is already planning a comeback!
The following is a direct quote from Dr David Sherris, a M.D. and Mayo Clinic researcher:
“We’ve seen significant improvement in the quality of life for the large majority of patients with chronic sinus infection who were treated with anti-fungal drugs.”
Dr Sherris also added:
“Many of them had been miserable for years and were severely hampered at work and in social situations by their illness. Many are pain-free and able to breathe effectively through their noses for the first time in years.”
OK… Now we know that the most advanced research hospital in the world has taken the position that “the large majority” of folks who suffer from chronic sinus infections could benefit tremendously from treating the real fungal cause of our problems.
But what about the rest of us who don’t have access to the cutting edge research trials at Mayo Clinic?
We have to be a little more resourceful. And thats OK. We can find ways to help ourselves.
There are genuine, natural ways to beat a fungal sinus infection-And stop it from coming back. I know because I did it.
