Sinusitis is a condition consisting of infection or inflammation of the paranasal sinuses, which may be a result of infection, allergy or autoimmune issues. A newer classification of sinusitis referred to as rhinosinusitis takes into account the thought that inflammation of the sinuses cannot occur without some inflammation of the nose as well (rhinitis). Sinusitis can be acute (less than 4 weeks), subacute (4-12 weeks), or chronic (12 weeks or more). All three types of sinusitis have similar symptoms, and are thus often difficult to distinguish. Roughly ninety percent of adults have acute sinusitis at some point in their life. Andrew Gaeddert discusses little known facts on treating sinusitis, clinical tips, and related symptoms such as sinus headache, facial pain, polyps, congestion, nasal discharge, and the worsening of asthma symptoms.
