Sinusitis Symptoms Accompanied By Tension Headaches And Stomach Acid?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Sinusitis (inflammation of the sinus cavity) is one of the most common causes of headaches. This headache occurs due to excessive pressure in the sinus cavities due to mucus buildup. Typically, headaches that occur due to sinusitis will feel dominant on the front of the face, namely the forehead and cheek areas, although they can also spread to other areas of the head. Not only headaches, sinusitis can also cause sufferers to experience a stuffy or runny nose, olfactory disorders, recurring nosebleeds, taste problems, fever, nasal voice, coughs, and various other complaints.
In fact, the various symptoms you experience cannot only be caused by sinusitis. Several other conditions, such as rhinitis (inflammation of the nasal cavity), nasal polyps, cancer of the nasal cavity, and so on can also cause similar complaints. The headaches you feel can also occur due to other factors, for example migraines, hypertension (high blood pressure), stress, hormonal changes, viral or bacterial infections, and so on.
Therefore, given the many possibilities that can trigger your complaints, you should not rush to take the drug. Especially with your history of suffering from acid reflux. Taking anti-pain medications carelessly can make your stomach acid disease recur and you will also feel nauseous, heartburn, shortness of breath, and even vomiting. It will be safer if you first do some natural treatments as follows:
Stay away from exposure to substances that have the potential to worsen sinusitis, such as cold (including by limiting going out when cold and drinking less cold drinks), dust, mites, pollen. Get more regular rest 6 to 8 hours a day Use a nose mask, especially when in a room dirty and polluted Do not smoke Regularly exercise and consume foods rich in vitamin C If you have severe head and facial pain, you can take paracetamol before going to a doctor (this drug is relatively safe for consumption by people with stomach acid). You go to the doctor to be given further treatment huh ...
I hope this helps.
