Want to discover how to alleviate sinus pressure? Avoid the confusion and ill-advice of what causes sinus problems. Learn what you can do about it and get your health back on track.
Which kind of sinus is causing you pain? Is it frontal, ethmoid, maxillary or sphenoid?
What is bothering you?
If you are experiencing frontal sinus, it means that you may have severe migraine headaches or pain in your forehead area. Ethmoid sinuses result in pain across the nose area and between the eyes.
If you are having pain in your upper jaw, cheeks or teeth, you could be experiencing maxillary sinus. Pain on top of your scalp, behind the eyes or along the back of your head could be attributed to sphenoid sinus.

Temporary Relief Until You Get Medical Help
While it is important that you should see an ENT specialist, you can still do some things to temporarily relieve yourself until you visit the doctor.
What can you do to cool off your head, easing some of the pain for now? Use a bag of ice or cold compress and place it on your head for several minutes as you lay down.
Sometimes, stress may be making the sinus problem worse, especially if you have a stressful job or lifestyle. So, it is time to reduce the stress once and for all. Get a neck and shoulder massage to relax.
Whether you are suffering from sinus pressure, difficulty breathing, blocked sinuses, you can breathe freely with the appropriate medical help. In fact, with a simple procedure, the discomfort can be completely gone and you will eliminate the discomfort.
