Your sinuses are cavities in your face that serve various functions, including moistening the air you breathe and producing mucus to trap and expel pathogens from your body. Sometimes, the sinuses can’t fight off the pathogens, leading to the familiar symptoms of a sinus infection: inflamed and swollen sinuses, increased mucus, headache, cough, congestion, and sometimes fever. Depending on the cause of your sinus infection, there are different ways to treat it. Sinusitis (inflammation of the sinuses) will usually clear up on its own, but you can help speed the process and reduce your symptoms with some at-home care. 
Sleeping or laying my head down is the worse as the thick mucus just goes from side to side clogging up either nostril making it so hard to sleep. Plus, as things get backed up, my ears and head start to pulverize. All I ever wished was that I could drain that thick mucus out. I have even blown my nose so hard and extreme that I have caused my nose to swell for days, noticeable on my face…looks like I broke my nose. I just wanted something to get rid of the blockage…maybe a vacuum cleaner to the nose? You laugh but I have thought about it. I just wanted that thick mucus gone!
I do have insurance, work full time, have for all of my adult life. And, I can’t afford the care of my own freaking teeth!! Whether you have insurance or not, it is a fortune. The health care industry is in crisis, never in older generations did people have to pay so much for health and dental insurance and STILL have to pay a fortune out of pocket and for prescriptions that are expensive. Its what happens when something as important as health care is left to the wolves of capitalism, as is the way of so many of our systems over the last few generations. I would give anything for SOCIALIZED HEALTH AND DENTAL CARE RIGHT NOW. We live in a world where we have to be insured for everything – this is progress?!?!
Have a nice day – and by the way – we were all immigrants to this country unless you are a native american, which I’m guessing you’re not.
