Are you suffering from congestion on a regular basis or chronic sinus infections? Maybe both have plagued you for many years. Have you been told that you have sinus problems? Did you know that almost ninety percent of sinus problems are actually headache syndromes that have been misdiagnosed? If your sinuses are not draining properly, it will cause you to have a number of issues, such as sleep problems, colds and flu, fatigue, allergies, pain, and much more. We will talk about what causes this a little later. For now, let’s discuss what you can do to find relief.
The common response leads those in the USA to spend $5.8 billion a year on sinus treatments. These include nasal steroids, decongestants, and antihistamines. Others use neti pots or other nasal rinses to clear out their sinuses. Some five hundred thousand people actually resort to having sinus surgery every year!
Doctors at Georgetown University Medical Center have come across a connection with sinus symptoms, chronic pain, and fatigue. Almost three hundred patients presented with sinus problems. Of these, twenty-two percent had unexplained fatigue, and eleven percent had chronic pain.
What’s the Cause?
A similar problem may be at the root of all three conditions. It can be related to a misalignment in the upper neck. The upper neck area is the most vulnerable to injury due to accidents, even minor ones. The tissue that holds the spine in place can become torn. This causes the spine to breakdown and then lock into a position of stress. When a misalignment of this type occurs, it affects the brainstem. In turn, this leads to problems with fatigue, sleep, pain, and sinuses.
