Causes of Sinusitus
- The common cold
- Allergic rhinitis, which is swelling of the lining of the nose
- Small growths in the lining of the nose called nasal polyps
- A deviated septum, which is a shift in the nasal cavity
Background: A theory by cgthedeathgod of medhelp.org who started posting in 2016
When we breath in and out, our bodies take in oxygen and output carbon dioxide. When one suffers from sinusitus, that is to say their nasal passage is swollen and clogged, their body doesnt cycle properly. One who believes to be breathing normally could actually only be breathing at half efficiency. This, overtime, causes an imbalance in our bodies which leads to us PATMers to release higher concentrations of carbon dioxide when we exhale.
This explains why we cause dryness in others throats, this also explains why sometimes people just clear their throats. It depends on the temperature of the room, quality of the rooms air. What this theory fails at, is explaining the phenomena of causing reactions through cars or via telephone. These sorts of reactions are much harder to explain, and may be wrote off as delusion.
I cant speak for all patmers, but as a smoker, I cause sinus infections to myself on daily basis. After I smoke I can feel my right nostril swell up and the sinus fill with mucus. One could say that the solution to stop my PATM is to quit smoking. Ive tried vaping and noticed that the reactions are MUCH less frequent or severe.
Ive noticed that PATM is worse in dusty environments. In addition, dust seems to accumulate more around me. In addition to this sinus theory I believe people should look into other ideas and theories. This is a very complex issue that cant be fixed through one method alone. Fix your diet, stop smoking, and be clean. If you still have PATM after this, do some soul searching.

Sinusitis is a common condition in which the lining of the sinuses becomes inflamed. It’s usually caused by a viral infection and often improves within two or three weeks.
