Patient Comments: Sinus Infection - Symptoms

What were your symptoms for sinus infection?

Comment from: whiskeygirl, Male (Patient) Published: January 31

Felt tired for several months, mucus draining going down my throat and a couple times a month coughing up a lot of mucus. Very sensitive to cold air. I thought it was just a bad cold. I think it started with an infected tooth. My dentist took an x-ray and said it had gone up into my sinus.

I had pain around the nose and a bad sore throat. Then a puffy large area of redness and lumps on the skin of one half of my face, very sore on that part of the face and hot to the touch. Mild headache, lethargy.

I had pain near the brows and the tops of my cheeks. Congestion, runny nose, and discharge both clear and of a yellow color. Headache on the third day and felt greatly clouded and fatigued.

I had what I thought was a toothache in one of my top back molars. I went to the dentist, he X-rayed and found nothing. When I told him that it hurt more when I put my head down, he quickly determined it must be my sinuses. He gave me a prescription for an antibiotic and peace of mind that it wasn't my teeth!

I usually have long cold, and there is usually blood in the nasal discharge, frequent headaches, and breathing problems. I can't breathe through both nostrils, which is the biggest pain in my life. I have consulted many doctors, but they say that one of the bones in one of my nostrils is not straight. And they also said that there is no longtime cure or permanent cure. I want to get rid of this problem. As this is effecting my career and personal life too.
