Symptoms of sinusitis

If you have sinusitis your symptoms may include:

  • pain and pressure in your face, which is worse when you lean forward
  • a blocked nose with green or yellow mucus, which can drain down the back of your nose into your throat and may cause a sore throat and cough
  • a headache.

Less common symptoms of sinusitis include tiredness, a reduced sense of smell, bad breath (halitosis) and a fever.
The pain you have will depend on which of your sinuses are affected.

  • Frontal sinusitis – pain just above your eyebrows, and your forehead may be tender to touch
  • Maxillary sinusitis – your upper jaw, teeth and cheeks may ache and it can be mistaken for toothache
  • Ethmoid sinusitis – pain around your eyes and the sides of your nose
  • Sphenoid sinusitis – pain around your eyes, at the top of your head or in your temples; you may also have earache and neck pain.Symptoms-of-sinusitis
