If you have suffered from sinus congestion frequently, you will have noticed that the symptoms can go from one extreme to the other and include breathing difficulties. Regardless of how mild or severe each bout is, as far as symptoms are concerned, there is likely a common root cause. A weakened immune system, chronic sinusitis or allergies are just some of the reasons sinuses become congested. If you do not seek diagnosis and treatment, you may never gain effective relief. Most medications are largely useless against a large number of common recurring sinus problems.
Additionally, medicines that do provide some level of relief may not address all the contributing health conditions responsible for your sinus congestion. Left untreated, recurring chronic sinusitis can cause damage to the lining in the sinuses. Symptoms then become more severe, and you will begin to experience other complications such as pressure, pain in your face or tension headaches that do not respond to even the most powerful painkillers.
Medications must be fit for purpose, so it is important to seek a diagnosis to determine why your sinuses are frequently becoming congested. If there is more than one root cause, it is highly likely that Dr. Greg Levitin can provide comprehensive treatment that provides effective relief. The most important aspect of seeking a diagnosis is that you are given the opportunity to benefit from treatments and support you may need, This is regardless of whether it is provided by Dr. Levitin and his team or via a referral to another relevant specialist.
