What is sinusitis?

Sinusitis is a chronic yeast infection of the sinus cavity that covers around and behind your eyes, nose and then down towards your throat. When you suffer from sinusitis, you complain of headaches, runny nose, fatigue, body aches and stuffy head etc. The specific cause of the yeast infection might vary from one patient to the other. It may be due to the nasal cavity deformities or nasal cavity blockage. In fact, the infection is also often related to allergies to food likewise in fibromyalgia.

Often when you suffer from sinus infection, you tend to think lightly of your symptoms such as stuffy head, runny nose and fatigue because there is a lack of awareness of the severity of sinusitis and the connection between sinusitis and fibromyalgia. Getting rid of sinusitis is very important as the chronic yeast infection can be an early warning of the pain disorder.
