Frequent Sinus Infection
Most of us have probably experienced the difficulty of getting a good night’s sleep when suffering from a stuffy or runny nose. Now imagine what it’s like if your sinus cavities are inflamed or infected, which can cause sinus pressure/pain, headaches and/or facial pain. This condition is called sinusitis and is considered chronic if you develop symptoms more than four times a year.
If you have chronic sinusitis, it could be an indication of an underlying issue, such as a blocked airway, which can also lead to sleep apnea. If you experience frequent sinus infections, this may be a sign you have sleep apnea.
