I need some motivation. I'm restless and depressed. I need some changes in my life. Tired of the same old things. Need to be patient and plan well. Right. 

Well, the first step is always the hardest. But we should never give up right? I need to take 1 step back and ponder for a moment. 

Hmmm.... Allah kabulkan doa ku! 

Btw thought of selling off some of my books. In the middle of sorting it out.

Sinus Infection Symptoms

Sinus Infection Causes

Acute sinusitis usually follows a viral infection in the upper respiratory tract, but allergy-causing substances (allergens) or pollutants may also trigger acute sinusitis. Viral infection damages the cells of the sinus lining, leading to inflammation.

Maxillary sinusitis (behind the cheek bones)

  • Pain across the cheekbone, under or around the eye, or around the upper teeth

  • Pain or pressure on one side or both

  • Tender, red, or swollen cheekbone (maxilla)

  • Pain and pressure symptoms are worse with the head upright and bending forward and better when reclining

  • Nasal discharge or postnasal drip

  • Fever is common

Those also experiencing facial pain or headaches may have a sinus infection.

Sinus Infection Treatment (Self-Care at Home)

Home care can help open the sinuses and alleviate their dryness.
Promote drainage:

  • Drink plenty of water and hydrating beverages such as hot tea.
  • Inhale steam two to four times per day by leaning over a bowl of hot water (not while the water is on the stove) or using a steam vaporizer. Inhale the steam for about 10 minutes. Taking a hot, steamy shower may also work. Mentholated preparations, such as Vicks Vapo-Rub, can be added to the water or vaporizer to aid in opening the passageways.
Chronic or recurring sinusitis lasts longer than eight weeks or occurs more than four times per year with symptoms usually lasting more than 20 days.
If a person experiences mild personality changes, headache, neck stiffness, high fever, altered consciousness, visual problems, or seizures, infection may have spread to the brain. Coma and death may follow.

So treat our health as importantly as possible. Every minor health problem may led to worst condition if not look in to seriously!
