Do you suffer from Sinusitis?

New research has uncovered a strong like between Sinusitis and Chronic Fatigue/Pain.

Personally, I find this research very interesting as a year before I became ill with PVFS, I was plagued by constant sinus problems.

(…) “Dr. Alexander Chester, an internist at Georgetown University Medical Center, surveyed almost 300 of his patients and found that those who reported unexplained chronic fatigue were nine times more likely to have sinusitis symptoms than those who felt rested and well.

(…) “Also, patients who said they had unexplained body pain were six times more likely than the pain-free patients to have such symptoms of sinusitis as facial pressure, heavy-headedness or frontal headache, Chester says.”

(…) “When compared to a control group of people without unexplained chronic fatigue or body pain, those with unexplained chronic fatigue were nine times more likely to have sinusitis symptoms. And those who reported unexplained body pain were six times more likely to have sinus symptoms than the control group, the study found.
