Acute and Chronic Sinusitis Symptoms & Treatment with Balloon Sinuplasty

Acute and chronic sinusitis refer to different levels and severity of sinus infections.

Symptoms include:

  • Stuffed or runny Nose: Nasal discomfort is one of the most common side effects of Sinusitis. Your nose may feel blocked up in both nostrils, impairing your ability to smell and breathe. Alternately, Sinusitis may be accompanied by a greenish-yellow discharge.
  • Pain and sensitivity: Sinus infections are often accompanied by throbbing pain that worsens with contact or simple motions such as chewing. Common pain areas include your head, teeth, ears, and throat.
  • High temperature/fever

Acute vs. Chronic Sinusitis

While both refer to sinus infections, chronic sinusitis’s side effects are much longer-lasting than those of acute Sinusitis. While acute sinusitis usually disappears on its own after 2-3 weeks, symptoms of chronic sinusitis can persist for as long as eight weeks and require professional treatment to be treated successfully.
