    Can the sinuses hurt without infection?

    The time I really feel my sinuses hurting is when I bend over to pick something off the floor. I'm not stuffed up or anything and don't have a cough or sneezing. How ould I know if it is truely a sinus infection? Can the sinuses hurt without it being a real problem?

    My sinuses have always hurt without having an infection. I have good luck taking a nasal decongestant like sudafed. It relieves the pressure and makes me feel better. Allergies and weather can certainly affect your sinuses without necessarily having an infection. You might try the sudafed and if you don't feel better after a few days, make an appt. with your doctor. He/she might need to prescribe a steriod nasal spray. Hope you feel better soon!

    Sometimes if you breath in something nasty they can hurt, like smoke etc... My nose also hurts when it's cold, with breathing in cold air.
