Sinusitis is inflammation of the lining membrane of any sinus. Take the following quiz to see if you have sinusitis.
Choose "yes" if you have any of the following symptoms for ten days or longer; otherwise, choose "no."
1. Facial pressure/pain?
2. Headache pain?
3. Congestion or stuffy nose?
4. Thick, yellow-green nasal discharge?
5. Low fever (99-100Â°)?
6. Bad breath?
7. Pain in the upper teeth?
If you answered "Yes" to three or more of the symptoms listed above, you may have a sinus infection resulting from allergies, bacteria, or a response to fungi. An examination by an ear, nose, and throat specialist may be warranted.
