Sinus pain can be felt around your eyes, forehead, and even around your teeth. Typically it is more painful in the morning and worsens when you bend or lean over. The discomfort is a result of irritated and swollen sinus passages. Over the counter medications such as decongestants and nasal spray can provide sinus relief, although sometimes sprays can have the opposite effect and exacerbate the problem.
Medical care for sinus relief is necessary if a fever is present and over the counter pain medications do not help or symptoms last longer than 10 to 14 days. A sinus infection is generally diagnosed after a physical examination by a health care professional. FastMed Urgent Care provides quality care at affordable prices 365 days a year.
