Anyone who has dealt with sinus pain and pressure knows that it’s uncomfortable, unpleasant and a major inconvenience. A new study out of South Korea finds that the consequences of chronic sinusitis are even worse than previously thought: chronic sinus sufferers are more than 1.5 times more likely to suffer from depression and anxiety. It’s even more likely if you are also dealing with nasal polyps.
Chronic sinusitis has been linked to depression and anxiety before, but this 11-year study of over 48,000 South Koreans brings the challenges of living with chronic sinusitis into clear focus.
