Had chronic sinusitis, head colds, pain. How to get cured?

I had chronic sinusitis all my life, went away when I cut my smoking down significantly and took my health seriously. This winter I have had three debilitating head colds; always starts the same as before. Starts in my my eye/ facial area, travels the nasal area, then to my throat and eventually chest. This time, though, I have some serious pain in my left lower skull area/ top of my neck. I am taking decongestants, and pain relievers (Motrin). What is this? The pain kicks back in before I can take another Motrin, don t want to take another one before I am supposed to.

General & Family Physician Dr. Pavan Kumar Gupta's  Response
Chronic sinusitis or chronic  rhinosinusitis (CRS) is a chronic inflammatory condition of the nasal passages and paranasal sinuses.

Chronic sinusitis means that a sinusitis becomes persistent and lasts for longer than 12 weeks. Chronic sinusitis is uncommon. Fungal infection of sinuses is very rare.
If routine medical treatments are not offering any relief to you then you must consult a ENT specialist and get properly investigated by getting following tests done.
Nasal swab culture
Nasal endoscopy
CT scan of para nasal sinuses.

Surgery is used mainly if the condition does not improve with the above medical treatments. The main purpose of surgery is to improve the drainage of the affected sinus and remove nasal polyps,if they are present.

The most common operation is called functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS). This can improve sinus drainage and ventilation and help to restore normal function to the sinus. This operation is minimally invasive (causes little damage) and usually has a high success rate in relieving symptoms of chronic sinusitis.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

You should see Ear Nose Throat specialist.
CT scan of the sinuses may be necessary - to rule out underlying/hidden anatomical causes.
Allergy / Immune deficiency / Diabetes - may have to be investigated..

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
