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.
If so, then you might have a sinus infection. It is not uncommon for people to experience these problems in and around Houston.

“I was suffering of constant congestion and running fevers every month! I was very miserable for almost 2 years. I decided to come see Dr. Nguyen after writing other doctors who wouldn't even give me the time of day. Dr. Nguyen actually sat down and listened! He noticed many things other doctors didn't. He treated me for my allergies and combined the procedure on me. After the procedure, I could actually breathe! Dr. Nguyen has ever since given me advice on how to continue to take care of my nose and keep allergies under control.”
