Sinusitis

Sinusitis

Your sinuses are the air-filled spaces in the bones around your nose, behind your forehead and cheekbones and they’re connected to your nose. When you have sinusitis, the mucosal lining of your sinuses become swollen, the mucus is unable to drain away properly, so your sinuses become blocked. Sinusitis can affect anyone, of any age and if you have sinusitis it may be very painful around your nose and face.

 

Symptoms:

  • pain around your nose and cheekbones
  • blocked or stuffy nose
  • sore throat and/or cough
  • changes to your sense of smell

 

We offer a comprehensive service for evaluating sinusitis, with allergy testing, sinus scanning and treatment followed by repeat assessment to ensure this has cleared. We will also provide advice on how to prevent the sinusitis from returning.
