Could this be a very nasty sinus infection?

0

I’ve been feeling a heavy pressure at the top of my nose for the past 8 days.  I went to my doctor today and had my throat/ears checked and all looked normal. She also checked my lungs and said it also looked normal. She didn’t prescribe me an antibiotic but said if more symptoms arise to go back and get on an antibiotic. Could this be a very nasty sinus infection? My nose is still hurting.

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.
