We live in a country where suffering from an illness that is related to pollution is quite common. India has a slew of people suffering from illnesses that are pollution-related and as a result, cause serious sinus issues. One such illness is known as Sinusitis. The illness is known to be very pervasive and known for being quite troublesome.
This illness affects different parts of the whole face. Affecting different parts of the face, the sinus is usually classified as follows. The classification includes three major classifications which are frontal sinus, maxillary sinus and sphenoid sinus.
Sinuses keep draining into the nose. They do this through a very small tube which is usually the size of a refill that is found in ball-point pen. Due to their small size they tend to get blocked with quite an ease, which obviously is not good.
When the blockage happened the fluid accumulates in the sinus and this leads to sinusitis. Which usually is the inflammation of the mucosal layer which are the lining for the sinuses.
So, what function does a Sinus usually serve? The sinus is in place to ensure that the dirt particles, pollen, smoke, and other suspended particles can be removed and do not accumulate and cause damage. When a person starts to feel pain in these sinuses, then it is usually the result of an infection which leads to the swelling and, also causes congestion within the confined spaces. There are cases where the infection will spread to the other parts of the body like the ears, throat and lungs.
When you suffer from sinusitis, it can be really difficult to differentiate between the different types of illness that has come to plague so many people over the years:
Before we get into the above-mentioned point it is important to remember that ayurvedic medicines are available with Ayushakti and can help you provide relief from the illness.
Now back to the point.
The frontal sinus is known to start above the eyebrows of a person. And when this gets infected the pain starts to radiate to the top or back of the head of the person.
In case the infection happens in the maxillary sinus, you will find yourself feeling pain in and around the cheeks or the teeth. And finally if you are suffering from the case of a sphenoid sinus infection, the pain will be experienced behind the eyes of the person.
Complications that are a result of the sinusitis
Sinusitis is the villain behind any problems like eye problems which includes pain like, swelling, puffiness, redness in the eye, dark circles and so on.
It is also responsible for poor vision.
Besides the above-mentioned complications, astigmatism and squinting can also happen as the affected person repeatedly pressed and rubs their eyes.
According to Ayurvedic tests, chronic sinusitis might also develop into Glaucoma.
Other side effects of the disease sinusitis include toothache, halitosis also known as foul breath, tonsillitis and adenoids. But, the list doesn’t end here. It is also known to cause many dreaded infections like ear infections, meningitis, lung infections and indigestion. Sinusitis is a serious problem and ayurvedic treatments for the disease are the best way to go about treating them. This illness which is known to trouble many is often caused due to the very common, common cold. But it can also be due to a bacterial infection or can be a result of allergies or might be due to some fungal infection.
In cases where the sinusitis is persistent, it can pave way for serious infections and complications which are known to make a person breathless.
So, what are the patients supposed to do then?
Here are certain tips for patients who are suffering from sinus problems
