Question: I bought an inversion table for my back pain but find when I invert myself, I experience a pain in my sinuses and my ears totally close up, I can't hear at all and the pressure is too much for me... What's wrong with me?

Brief Answer:
This is common and will settle with treatment.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for your query.

1. These pressure symptoms are common and are due to chronic sinusitis and congestion of tissues in the nose, sinuses and nasopharynx.

2. A steroid nasal spray, an anti allergic tablet and steam inhalation will settle this.

3. Avoid using OTC nasal decongestant drops as these are habit forming and cause rebound congestion.

4. If symptoms persist, get an examination done by an ENT Specialist.

I hope that I have answered your query. If you have any more questions I will be available to answer them.

Regards.
