The South Texas Sinus Institute: solving sinus problems and treating ear, nose, and throat conditions.

Hello. I’m Blake Hensler with South Texas Sinus Institute. If you suffer from sinus headaches, then you know just how difficult living with sinus headaches can be. Chronic sinus headaches are usually a symptom of a bigger problem. Sinus headaches can be pain or pressure around the eye; sometimes it affects both eyes. Many patients describe it as if there is a vice grip around their head. Sinus headaches are usually connected to sinus and nasal congestion.

Fortunately, depending on the severity and patient conditions, there are a variety of treatment options ranging from medication, sinus irrigation with a saline solution, and balloon sinuplasty procedure. You do not have to live with chronic sinus problems. If you have a sinus headache that will not go away or keeps recurring, then it is time to see a doctor. For South Texas Sinus Institute, I am Blake Hensler.
