Can this be caused by a sinus infection?

I haven’t been feeling very well and have been experiencing a lot of pressure in the side of head. Over the last few weeks my symptoms have been getting worse and I feel fatigued and light headed. Can this be caused by a sinus infection?  Its been almost 4 weeks now, how long does this go on for?

Hi there,

Thanks for your question. Those who suffer from Sinusitis find themselves at the mercy of all ailments synonymous with nasal blockage. These may include:

– Facial pressure
– Nasal stuffiness
– Nasal discharge
– Loss of smell
– Congestion

Symptoms of sinusitis include thick nasal discharge, facial pain or pressure, fever, and reduced sense of smell. Depending on how long these symptoms last, sinusitis is classified as acute, sub acute, chronic, or recurrent. Viruses are the most common cause of acute sinusitis, but bacteria are responsible for most of the serious cases.
