If you deal with block sinuses frequently, you know how annoying they can be. It becomes difficult to breathe through your nose, and you may get sinus headaches. You may feel like you have pressure on your eyes and face, and your ears may pop as your sinuses try to drain into them. Your throat may become sore from thick mucus drainage. If you have had these symptoms for more than three months, you may have what is called chronic sinusitis.
If you have chronic sinusitis or blocked sinuses, you may have postnasal drainage, that is, drainage from your nose into the back of the throat. You may have nasal congestion, which makes it difficult to breathe through your nose. You may have difficulty smelling or tasting things, or you might have a cough. Your forehead, around the eyes, nose, and cheeks may be tender to touch.
