Sinusitis (also known as rhinosinusitis) is caused by inflammation of the lining of the nasal passages and sinuses. Sometimes, sinusitis may be worsened by fungal or bacterial infection. In most cases, sinusitis is caused by a variety of noninfectious causes, resulting in acute or chronic inflammation of the nose and sinuses. Therefore, if you have sinusitis, you should see a specialist who can properly diagnose your condition and develop an individualized treatment plan for you.
The symptoms of sinusitis in adults may include:
- Nasal congestion or obstruction
- General fatigue
- Loss of smell and taste
- Runny nose with thick, discolored drainage
- Pain or pressure in face and sinuses
