Sinus Conditions and Chronic Sinus Problems

Dr. Bequer is an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) specialist operating in the Tampa and West Palm Beach areas. His most frequently shared advice? Don’t put off seeing your ENT doctor if you have chronic sinus problems. The ears, nose, and throat are all connected via the sinuses, and a problem with one frequently affects the others.

Relief is possible. Waiting only delays that relief and often leads to more complicated sinus conditions down the line.

If you struggle with chronic sinus problems, the chances are that you have a lot of questions. Some of the most frequent that we hear include, “What are the signs of sinus problems?”, “What can you take for chronic sinusitis?”, “What can cause nasal congestion?”, and, of course, “How do I cure chronic sinusitis?”

The staff at Sinus Solutions of South Florida have decades of experience answering questions like these and treating both every day and severe sinus conditions. The below conditions are just an example of what we can treat; it is by no means an exhaustive list!

Sinus Conditions & Chronic Sinus Problems

  • Deviated Septum: The bone and cartilage that separates your nostrils, known as the nasal septum, can be crooked, or “deviated,” increasing your likelihood of experiencing chronic sinus problems such as blockages and infections. Luckily, deviated septum relief is possible.
  • Nasal Polyps: Nasal polyps and sinusitis are common bedfellows. Caused by chronic inflammation, nasal polyps are benign, teardrop-shaped growths that hang from your sinuses or nasal passages. Nasal polyps can cause chronic sinus problems such as infections, breathing issues, postnasal drip, and more complications.
  • Allergies: Whether your allergies are seasonal or chronic, the symptoms are always a pain, and, left untreated, can lead to further sinus conditions and infections.
  • Sinusitis: Also known as a sinus infection, this nasal sinus disease, often caused by a virus, causes your nasal cavity to become inflamed or infected. Sinusitis can cause chronic sinusitis fatigue and is often the culprit behind other chronic sinus problems, like chronic sinusitis and allergies.
  • Sleep Apnea: Sleep apnea occurs when your airway either collapses or becomes blocked during sleep. It not only disrupts your rest, but makes you more susceptible to mood changes, hypertension, glaucoma, and additional sinus conditions. If you have chronic sinusitis and sleep apnea, the chances are high that neither you (nor your partner) are getting the sleep that you need.
  • Snoring: We all snore occasionally, but chronic snoring can point to other sinus issues, reduce your quality of sleep, and even put strain your heart (let alone your relationship). The combination of sinus problems and snoring is not to be ignored.

Treatment for Sinus Conditions

As stated, many of these conditions are linked to the sinuses. How do you clear your sinuses? How long does it take to get over chronic sinusitis treatments? The answer to these questions depends on the type of severity of your sinus conditions.

If chronic sinusitis home remedies are not helping with your chronic sinus problems, it may be time for sinus infection treatment. Learn more about how to treat chronic sinusitis and schedule a consultation today and start on your journey towards a more comfortable life.
