Sinusitis Treatment: Simple Home Remedies
Sinusitis Treatment. Simple Home Remedies. Some of the nasal sinuses lie very close to the brain. Any inflammation within these sinuses may produce a rather severe type headache. Sometimes the headache comes on gradually, at other times rather quickly.
There may also be marked postnasal discharge or dripping down into the throat, as well as fever, loss of appetite, dizziness, and loss of the normal senses of smell. A feeling of toothache might also be present if the maxillary sinuses are involved.
During the early phase the temperature may rise to 102f. Anything higher than this suggested further complications, such as obits media or inflammation of the middle ear. In chronic sinusitis the headache is less sever and the patient may complain of “current colds.” Sinusitis and its complications are discussed on page 270.
