This common condition interferes with the way mucus normally drains, and makes your nose stuffy. Breathing through your nose may be difficult, and the area around your eyes might feel swollen or tender. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp RAJESH SURESH DAKE Raigarh, India 210 Questions 106 Answers 0 Best Answers 32 Points View Profile RAJESH SURESH DAKE Added an answer on February 28, 2020 at 5:27 am Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is a poorly understood inflammatory condition affecting the sinuses. We are unsure of what exactly causes CRS. It is characterized by waxing and waning symptoms, including nasal drainage or post nasal drip, changes in smell, nasal congestion, facial pressure or pain, ear fullness, cough, and fatigue. The clinical diagnosis of CRS is usually made based on the time course of the disease (symptoms present for more than three months) plus some combination of signs and symptoms, CT scan results, and an endoscopic nasal examination. Answered by Raj Sindwani, MD. Dr. Sindwani is a rhinologist who specializes in endoscopic sinus, orbital, and skull base surgery. He heads the Section of Rhinology, Sinus, and Skull Base Surgery at Cleveland Clinic. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
