While everyone else is starting the new year at the gym, I am starting it in bed (along with many others I am sure) with a sinus infection. I have suffered from these nasty ailments for years and have always wondered what is a sinus and why do we have them? According to http://www.webmd.com, sinuses are “air-filled cavities (spaces) located in your forehead, cheekbones, and behind the bridge of your nose” and when they become inflamed, they can cause discomfort and headaches. Yep. That’s definitely what they do. Anyone who has suffered a sinus infection know how miserable it can make you. It’s almost like a migraine in the fact that bright lights hurt your eyes and your head feels like it is about to explode at any moment. I also tried researching WHY we have these cavities and guess what? No one seems to definitively know. Some feel it could be to enhance our voices while others feel it is to help humidify or cleanse the air we breathe through our noses. . But I ask you, do you know why we have these pesky cavities? Any home remedies you have that I can try? To all my fellow sickies, feel better and have a happy and healthy 2013!
