Air-Quality affects the sinus forecast in Indianapolis, Noblesville, Fishers, Carmel and Fort Wayne. Chronic sinusitis sufferers and patients who have recently had sinusplasty may have more triggers and symptoms when the air quality worsens Remember, OZONE, Particulates, and Nitrogen Dioxide, can trigger symptoms that mimic allergies in sensitive individuals. Symptoms like eye irritation, runny nose and breathing issues may be worse in sensitive individuals.
The EPA associates moderate levels with this statement/recommendation: Air quality is acceptable. However, there may be a risk for some people, particularly those who are unusually sensitive to air pollution. It is important to be aware of pollution projections in your area as they can correlate with more chance of respiratory symptom triggers including sinus pain and pressure, nasal and sinus drainage and asthma. Farmers in the field near you can create localized pockets of poor air quality so be aware of this if you are symptomatic. Note: AQI related symptoms can mimic allergies. Ozone (think pollution), and particulates and chemicals from farming, are general respiratory irritants and can affect all respiratory symptoms including sinus, eye, and asthma complaints

POLLEN Chronic Sinusitis Symptoms in Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, Carmel, Fishers, Westfield, Noblesville, and across Indiana is currently completed. Under the rare instance that temperatures warm this season we may see allergy triggers affect severity when levels rise and also see worsening with rising mold counts during periods of rain. Increasing symptom triggers will cause increasing symptoms of drainage, itching, and eye issues as well as more nasal, sinus and respiratory symptoms.
The pollen season in the area has completed. There will be no pollen generated locally until the early spring trees begin to pollinate.
SYMPTOMS The Indiana Sinus Centers sinus forecast helps predict your symptoms by looking at key drivers of sinus health in the midwest. Individual patients may have local conditions affecting their individual symptoms. Many of you may see personal symptoms fluctuate because of personal sensitivities to mold, air-quality, indoor/outdoor allergens or changes in local conditions across the state. As the weather warms this season OZONE may be an issue and cause symptoms similar to allergy even if the weather seems beautiful. Stable weather patterns throughout the state generally create less risk of sinus pain, pressure, and headache complaints because the barometer is more stable during these periods. Stormy weather will generally cause more symptoms.
INNOVATIVE TREATMENTS FOR ACUTE, CHRONIC, AND SEVERE SINUSITIS
WHAT TO DO The sinus forecast can help you determine what to do to feel better. If you are having symptoms, seek-out indoor activities and stay indoors as much as possible. There are also plenty of over the counter nasal sinus medications such as oral antihistamines, and nasal steroids that you can try to help your symptoms. If you can take over the counter decongestants safely this may help headaches triggered from the shifting barometer.

ADVANCED SINUS RELIEF
Advanced Sinus Treatment Options – When Medications Quit Working
This year’s Indiana Allergy and Sinus Season is in full force. Unfortunately the typical Indiana Summer and Fall can have plenty of triggers from poor air-quality, ozone, road salt, and indoor allergens. For those patients who suffer from allergies or have general inflammation triggered by other environmental exposures like local farming, these fluctuating air-quality issues can play havoc on the sinuses. If the Summer and Fall was bad for you last year you may be hitting this season with a significant amount of chronic inflammation and chronic symptoms. This chronic inflammation leads to chronic swelling of the nasal mucosa which then triggers chronic sinusitis symptoms and chronic infections. After several months of symptoms the anatomy in the sinus spaces of the nose can begin to permanently change so that medications such as antibiotics, nasal steroid sprays and oral allergy medications no longer offer relief. If you continue to have trouble with your sinuses after the allergy season ends you may have transitioned to having chronic sinusitis.
Symptoms of chronic sinusitis include:
- facial pain and pressure
- headache pain
- congestion and stuffy nose
- thick, yellow-green nasal discharge
- bad breath
- and pain in the upper teeth
If you have any of these types of chronic symptoms you may be a candidate for an innovative office sinus procedure called Balloon Sinuplasty. It’s a minimally invasive, office based procedure that typically can be performed in 15 minutes.
