    Question Sinus problems?

    I always have a sinus headache, and sinus problems. I was just wondering if anyone else does, and if you think this is could be caused by anxiety. It seems like every other problem I have is caused by my anxiety, and I'm just trying to figure out if it's that it, or if I actually have something wrong with my sinuses. An infection maybe? I don't know.

    I dont think theres a connection a nettipot can be used to wash out the sinuses with warm salt water, many find this useful

    Re: Sinus problems?

    Funny that you should post this, I think that one of the reasons I always have anxiety problems in the spring is because of my allergies. I have terrible sinus congestion that causes headaches, dizziness, and post nasal drip that causes a gunky throat, I clear my throat constantly and have trouble clearing it and it makes me feel lilke I'm not breathing that well. I often wake up with sore throats, ear aches and just an all over blah feeling. I really am starting to believe that after a while of just not feeling well, I lose it. Unfortunately I have trouble taking medications for this, as they cause insomnia and more anxiety.
    I think that I have read somewhere that histamines can cause your body to produce different chemicals, maybe messing up the natural balance of things in the brain. I haven't really investigated it, but am very curious, as this happens to me every year starting in March.

    Re: Sinus problems?

    I think i can recommend another site withen these boards??? Because i too have sinus problems, or inner ear problems and anxiety disorder/ocd etc.... when i read in the "inner ear disorder" in these health boards i was amazed. Read under the "dizzy" parts. I was surprized that anxiety sufferers and inner ear disorder sufferers have very similar symptoms...So, go to the top of this page and whre it sais "HealthBoards" click on that and then look under inner ear disorder....hope that helps...

    I have sinus issues as well - which leads to more anxiety. I use a nasal spray for sinus pressure and it seems to help with the headaches.

    Re: Sinus problems?

    Jesska, I have horrible sinuses also, and I think the anxiety just intensifies it (just like it does everything else). My anxiety is always worse in the spring/summer also...and I think it is because of my allergies/sinus problems. I don't think anxiety causes the problems however, but it definitely makes you dwell on it more, get frustrated, etc. Anytime you're not feeling up to par, it can make anxiety worsen. Take care.

    I agree with moniq - the anxiety just heightens every little ache, pain, stuffy nose, etc. and blows it way out of proportion.
