Sinus is one of the most common health conditions in the United States. People often adapt to living with sinus problems. A sinus infection can cause a headache or pressure in the eyes, nose, cheek area, or on one side of the head.  Each sinus has an opening into the nose for the free exchange of air and mucus, and each is joined with the nasal passages by a continuous mucous membrane lining. Sinusitis is categorized as acute (sudden onset) or chronic (long term, the most common type). Sinusitis simply means your sinuses are infected or inflamed, but this gives little indication of the misery and pain this condition can cause. In common usage, “sinus” usually refers to the paranasal sinuses, which are air cavities in the cranial bones, especially those near the nose and connecting to it. Acute sinusitis is a short-term condition that responds well to antibiotics and decongestants; chronic sinusitis is characterized by at least four recurrences of acute sinusitis.
