As many people know first hand, nasal and sinus conditions are increasingly common and symptoms can be debilitating. Headaches, nasal blockage, sinus pressure, nasal drainage, fatigue, and decreased sense of smell adversely affect the quality of life for many of our patients. Infection Nasal and sinus problems are often associated with complications from the common cold, but they can also occur from trauma to the nasal cavity. In general, any condition that blocks the sinuses from proper drainage may lead to infection. A sinus infection, also called an upper respiratory infection, is characterized by swelling or inflammation of the sinuses and is typically caused by a virus. When the infection blocks the sinuses and begins to fill with fluid, then the condition is referred to as sinusitis.
