Do you awake each morning with a runny nose, coughing, head-ache, sinus running uncontrollably, eyes swollen and feeling miserable? If so, you are experiencing first hand what a sinus attach can do to you. This painful and discomfiting sinus problem effects millions of people each and everyday globally. In this articles I'm going to explain what sinus is and some of the cures I utilize to get relief from this most discomfiting problem.
Defining What a Sinus Is!
You have under your facial skin, small pockets or a better word would be air spaces that are lined with mucous membranes. These small pockets fill with mucous and becomes swollen and inflamed causing a build up of excess mucous leading to a severe head-ache or severe nose run. These symptoms can become very painful and lead to a bad nasal sinus infection.
A Sinus infection is nothing more than excess mucous building up in your sinus tracts. Keeping these passageways cleared will cut down on your sinus problems.
Getting Relief From Sinuses!
There are nasal sprays you can purchase from your nearest Pharmacy that can give some temporary relief but I have found the best relief is heat some water to a boiling point and sniff the vapors from this boiling water. What it does is open up your nasal passageways and allows the mucous to clear out so you can breath normally again. Another great cure is to walk outside for a few minutes and breath the fresh air. This also is a great help for me. Sometimes the gasses within the home begin to build up and this will cause you sinus problems. There are gasses that are distributed from your stoves, refrigerator and other appliances. These can become self generated problems.
Another cause for sinus infections is pollen from the trees. Have you ever noticed that in the spring your sinuses seems to act up more than any other time of the year? The reason for this is the trees are in bloom, flowers coming to life and all of natural blooming at one time. Well these little beauties are filled with pollen and they begin passing them on via the wind. Some are so small you can't possible see them, therefore you breath them and guess where they take lodging? You got it, your sinus cavities, causing a serious sinus infection.
