: why does it hurt so bad when your sinus gets filled up with water?

In: 6

Because your sinus isn’t meant to be filled up with water. You aren’t mean to be breathing water. Don’t pour water up your nose.

The pain is electrical stimulation.

Regardless of the mineral content, if the pH of water is the same as snot, 5.5-6.5, then snorting a nose full of water doesn’t hurt. There’s no difference in potential.

Sinuses are supposed to hold air and the facial bones and membranes that create them are very sensitive to changes. When water enters your sinus, it can create a change in pressure, acidity, salinity, some kind of imbalance, which aggravates the delicate insides of the sinuses and causes pain

Could be a few reasons.

Foremost, increase in pressure due to increase in fluid retention. Cells/tissue in your sinus are great at exchanging fluid… But sometimes it hurts if it happens too fast or too much.

Also possibly… The ph, chlorine, amongst other things..
