Sinus Drainage Into Lungs
Physician Eval...: Often, your doctor can tell the difference by examining you, including listening to your lungs with a stethoscope while you breathe deeply. If your lungs are congested, there will be abnormal sounds over your lung fields. With sinus congestion, your lungs will sound normal (unless bronchospasm related to your sinuses is present. If so, wheezing will be heard!).See 1 more doctor answer

Operated fungus ball in left maxillary sinus. Now, postnasal discharge (~ right side) in stomach and left lung. Big spleen. Smelly urine. What could be?
See doctor: Fungal ball in the sinus is not expected to cause urinary, abdominal, or urinary symptoms. If this affects your lung, then one needs to rule out the presence of fungal ball in the lung also. With the large spleen, I suspect that you are having a systemic disease and this requires tests and examination to clarify. By the way, the odor of urine is not usually diagnostic of anything.
I have a cough and sinus drainage and chest pain and I am achey and I have a low fever the highest was 99.6. Is it serious enough to see a doctor?

Red rash on chest starting to get a bad sore throat and ear pain. Have had some allergy sinus drainage. No fever yet. Could this be Strep?
Usually not: Sinus problems are usually related to the sinuses in your face and are usually related to some allergy, rather than something related to your lungs.See 1 more doctor answer
Had what I thought was sinus issues for over a month. Now it feels as if I have lung pain. Gets sharp sometimes with deep breath right side.
Not usually: A sinus infection is usually in your head/face/cheeks. It should not, typically, cause your lungs to hurt. Unless, of course, the infection tracked down into your lungs and caused pneumonia. Would get checked out.
Unlikely: If you have a sinus infection only then the answer would be no. However frequently the pt can have a sinus infection as well as a lung infection so then the answer would be yes. Need more information but if you are a smoker this is a very common scenario.
Productive cough: A upper respiratory viral infection will start in the nose and throat, causing clear drainage and sore throat. Towards the end it will generally spread to lungs, causing cough, and viral bronchitis. If the cold lasts longer than about 10 days, and the drainage turns green or yellow, it may very well be a sinus infection. If your cough produces yellow mucus, it could be pneumonia. See a doc.

Past 6 mos. Sudden choke - cough out what looks like (scab?) - always same shape/size 2cm/thickness 3mm - no congestion - come from sinus? Not lungs?
Sinus: Is more likely the source, in fact it's the back of the nose. Probably is made of dried secretions.
For the last week I have had what seems to be a sinus infection. Used the pot to rinse my sinus several times. This morning my lungs are burning. Why?
Reactive: Some individuals develop reactive airways from an upper respiratory infection. Or, it may not be an infection at all but could be nasal allergies that can also trigger the same. See your doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more
