What Kind of Doctor Can Fix My Sinus Problems?

What Kind of Doctor Can Fix My Sinus Problems

Your sinuses are hollow air spaces within the bones between your eyes, behind your cheekbone, and in the forehead. They produce mucus, which helps keep the inside of your nose moist. That, in turn, helps protect against dust, allergens, and pollutants. Thus, when sinuses are congested or infected, a person may experience difficulty in breathing, pain around the eyes, fatigue and headaches.

An ENT Doctor Can Fix Sinus Problems

Whether you feel like you go to your doctor with too many issues or you don’t know how to explain your sinus problems, you’ve got to get yourself checked out eventually.  A regular doctor may not sound like the right person for the job, though.  Thankfully, we’ve got Otolaryngologists for that.

Sound too complicated?  Let’s just call them Ear, Nose and Throat doctors.  ENTs are experts at dealing with tricky issues from the neck up; sinuses included.   They can diagnose, treat and even operate on anything that falls within their field of expertise.

Your sinuses definitely fall in to that field.  ENTs won’t waste any time on any far flung theories on what may be bugging you.  While you may feel like your sinus condition is kind of mysterious, they’ve seen it all before.

What sets an ENT apart is their knowledge, skills and the tools they can employ to see your sinus problems become things of the past.  Before one of these heroes saves the day though, you need to know whether what you’re feeling is what they deal with!

Sinus Infection Symptoms 

Armed with the knowledge that your body is in fact, normal and that there are doctors out there to help, it’s time to take a close look at how you feel.  Let’s start with some questions:

  • Do you have discharge?
  • Are you congested?
  • Is there pressure or a headache-like pain?
  • Do any of your teeth ache?
  • Are you swollen or tender around the eyes, cheeks and forehead?
  • Do you feel unreasonably tired?
  • Is this worse than any cold you’ve ever had?
  • Has it stuck around for longer than 4 weeks?

If you answered yes to two or more of the above, there’s a high chance you’ve got a case of sinusitis on your hands.  If you feel like this all the time and somehow thought that was normal, it could even be chronic.  This means it’s ENT time.
