Link Between Chronic Fatigue, Sinus Problems and Pain

Researchers at the Georgetown University Medical Center did a study that uncovered a connection between extreme fatigue and sinus problems. The study assessed 297 patients with a variety of medical concerns.

  • 22% complained of chronic fatigue
  • 11% had constant pain
  • 9% experienced both chronic fatigue and pain

The compelling thing about this study was that it revealed an important link between patients with chronic pain or fatigue and sinus problems. Sinus problems were common in subjects with fatigue and pain than those in the control group. What could be the reason behind it?

Sinus Problems Related to Neck Misalignments

Researchers recognized that sinus problems are usually due to a misalignment of the C1 or C2 vertebra (atlas and axis) of the upper cervical spine. Even a misalignment as small as a ΒΌ of a millimeter can have a significant impact on the whole body. 

Misalignments can be a result of a car accident, sports injury, or mild blow to the neck or head. When the connective tissue in the neck endures damage, the spine suffers from stress. As a result, the position of the bones shift. 

Both the C1 and C2 vertebrae, the topmost bones in the neck, are prone to misaligning. The subluxation of either bone affects the brainstem as they are within the same area. It results in many unpleasant outcomes such as reduced oxygen reaching the brain, limited flow of cerebrospinal fluid, and sinus problems.
