Asthma & Sinus Infection

Patient

Q: Hi. Today I had an asthma attack that lasted for a few hours which was triggered by the sudden cold weather change. My breathing is now relaxed but now I have a sinus headache and stopped up nose. Could an asthma attack trigger a sinus infection? Thank you.

Symptoms:  Asthma: Wheezing. Tightness in chest. Shortness of breathing. Rapid breathing. Mild coughing. Mucus in throat.

After asthma attack: Sinus headache (around eyes especially). Stuffy nose.
