A few words about the pressure in the sinuses

One of the most prominent indicators or signs of the inflammatory process in the sinus cavities (medically called sinusitis) is the increased secretion of the mucus, which tends to accumulates in the cavities of the upper respiratory system and to become thicker. The inevitable consequence is the blockage of the nasal airways (congestion) which is the direct trigger of the ache felt in the areas of the sinuses and the pressure-like sensation in these cavities and in all the head.

Nevertheless, the headache is one of the most common health problems and, therefore, it is easily relieved by the consumption of the numerous different available painkillers. But, the problem is that this inflammation can be either, intense and of the short term character, and it as well may be rather permanent, depending on whether the condition is provoked by a virus, allergen, or some other trigger. The fact is that, for example, in the case of the inflammation caused by the viral infection, the pressure in the head, as the consequence and the indicator of it, can last up to ten days.

How to deal with the pressure?

In order to successfully lessen the pressure, it is essentially important to get to know how it is created. So, those four pair of the sinus cavities are filled with certain baggy formations in which tend to become swollen and congested during the onset of the chronic inflammation of the sinuses. Having in mind that the inner ear, which is connected to the nasal system, plays the major role in the balance, it is logical to understand that the disruption of the normal circulation of the air into the sinuses consequently lead to the blockage of the normal functioning of the inner ear. In fact, the key to the problem is the disrupted balance between the pressures in the cavities of the head and the lowered electrical impulses to the brain. So, that is why the fatigue and the sensation of losing the control over the limbs is felt.

Also, the infection can as well easily extend over the hearing system, being transmitted by the affected mucus. Fortunately, this problem can be solved, and that is done simply by treating its root, that is, by lessening the pressure in the sinuses. For that purpose, it is beneficial to inhale the steam, to drink more liquids (in order to make the mucus watery) and to put the warm cloth over the ear(s). Also, this problem could be successfully solved by the acupressure, and the massage of the painful spots.
