What you need yo know about Chronic Sinusitis?

What you need yo know about Chronic Sinusitis?

You may feel congestion or fullness all over your face, pain around eyes, forehead, and face, and may have a runny nose or nasal congestion. The condition may be chronic sinusitis and knowing the symptoms will help you manage the condition effectively.

Chronic sinusitis is a condition where the cavities around the nasal passages, i.e., the sinuses become swollen and inflamed and stays like that for about 12 weeks. It is a persisting condition, and one or more sinuses are affected in this condition.

What causes chronic sinusitis?
There are quite a few causes that can lead to chronic sinusitis. Some of them are:

  • A damaged nasal septum may cause the blockage of the sinus passages, thereby leading to chronic sinusitis.
  • The growth of nasal polyps in the sinus passages causes the blocking of the passages and thus may lead to chronic sinusitis.
  • Infections in the respiratory tract which can be viral, bacterial or fungal like cold and cough may cause the inflammation of the tissues in the nasal passage and thus block the passage for mucous movement. Such a condition also leads to chronic sinusitis.
  • Other causes include some medical conditions like any immune system related diseases such as HIV or any complications of cystic fibrosis, gastroesophageal reflux, etc.
  • Sometimes allergic conditions may also lead to the inflammation of the tissues of the nasal passage and result in the same.

Know The Symptoms To Self-diagnose
There are four primary symptoms related to chronic sinusitis out of which a person requires to be confirmed of the presence of at least two symptoms for the doctor to suspect chronic sinusitis. These are:

  • Congestion of the nasal passage causing breathing difficulties through the nose.
  • Discharge of highly viscous or thick, discolored mucus from the nose and also drainage of such down the back of your throat.
  • Swelling, tenderness, and pain around the eyes, cheeks, nose, and forehead.
  • A cough or reduced taste and smell sensations in the adults.

Other symptoms include a sore throat, pain in the upper jaw and teeth, ear pain, worsened cough at night, etc.

Clinical Diagnosis
There are quite a few ways by which your doctor is going to diagnose the problem, some of which are:

  • Observing the nasal passage by nasal endoscopy, that is by inserting an endoscope with a fiber-optic light. This process is also called Rhinoscopy.
  • Details of your nasal area can also be observed using the images obtained from a CT or MRI scan.
  • If any of the above tests fail, a tissue culture test of your nasal passage and sinus is done to identify the infection you are affected with.

Allergy tests may also be done if the doctor suspects the condition to be caused by any allergies.

Various medications, immune-therapies, and even surgeries are opted for reducing the inflammation or for making way for the mucus to move out. The treatment is chosen depending on the severity of the situation.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Cystic Fibrosis- Causes and Symptoms!

General Physician, Delhi
Cystic Fibrosis- Causes and Symptoms!

Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disorder that is known to affect some of the vital organs of the body including the lungs, digestive system to name a few. For long it was believed that cystic fibrosis affects a person in their childhood. However, various research and studies suggest that adults are also susceptible to this inheritable disorder. In this article, we will discuss the cause and symptoms associated with cystic fibrosis.

The epithelial cells that line the stomach, nasal cavity and lungs, are responsible for the production of the digestive fluids, sweat, tears, mucus. The Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator (CFTR) gene codes for a protein called the CFTR protein. The CFTR protein, a membrane protein plays a pivotal role in transporting the chloride ions of the epithelial cells inside and out of the cell. This regulation of the chloride ions goes a long way in ensuring that the mucus produced is free-flowing and thin.

In the case of Cystic Fibrosis, the CFTR gene that codes for the protein undergoes a mutation. With the CFTR protein unable to perform its function, sticky and thick mucus builds up and clogs some of the major systems of the body including the digestive system, reproductive, and respiratory system. There is also a higher salt content in the sweat of the affected person.

For a person to be affected by cystic fibrosis, he/she must inherit a copy of the mutated CFTR gene from both the parents ( Autosomal Recessive Disorder) at birth.

The symptoms associated with cystic fibrosis depends on the organs and systems affected.

  1. The thick mucus formed can clog the digestive tract resulting in incomplete absorption of the essential nutrients from the food. This may have an impact on the overall growth and development of the body.
    • - There may be stunted growth or no weight gain.
    • - The stool may appear greasy and foul smelling. Some may also suffer from constipation.
    • - Newborns and infants may suffer from an intestinal blockage.
  2. Cystic fibrosis, left unattended can lead to diabetes, intestinal blockage or obstruction.
    • - The mucus can also block the bile duct triggering a host of problems including liver disorders.
    • - At times, the obstruction or blockage can occur at the junction where the large and the small intestine meets (Distal intestinal obstruction syndrome).
  3. The thick mucus can also affect the lungs and the respiratory system by blocking the tubes that act as a passage carrying the air inside and out of the lungs. As a result,
    • - A person may suffer from lung infections frequently.
    • - There may be difficulty in breathing, stuffy and blocked nose, or wheezing.
    • - Some people may also suffer from a chronic cough with a thick sputum.

Left untreated the complications can worsen resulting in

Nasal polyps, Chronic infections, Hemoptysis (there is blood while coughing), and Pneumothorax (air fills up in the space bifurcates the chest wall from the lungs).

In severe cases, there may be a respiratory failure.

Cystic fibrosis can also trigger fertility problems (both in males and females).

What can be an appropriate issue regards my health?

Hello, Having Increased Eosinophil Count is indicative of Allergic response of your body towards an Allergen (Substance causing Allergy) You might only be knowing that you are allergic to cold foods, Dust. But there might also be something else you are allergic to and you haven't been noticing that yet. It might be some particular agent which may even be in your food that take like Brinjal, Tomato, Ladyfinger, Cabbage etc. Better get a "patch test" done. This is a test that is used to determine the Allergic substance which you may be allergic to. But consult a Doctor before and get examined, Evaluated properly in an order.
