What Happens When Sinuses Don't Work Properly?

When your Sinuses aren't working, it can lead to several situations. Most commonly aches and congestion. Pressure on sinus walls can be caused from air trapped within a blocked sinus. Liquids may add to this pressure, bringing along with it the intense pain of a sinus attack. In addition, if your membranes become swollen, they can prevent air from entering your sinuses, creating a painful vacuum effect.
