A sinusitis surgery has been shown to clear up chronic fatigue also, according to a study in the journal Laryngoscope.

“Finally we have good, scientifically consistent evidence that fatigue will very often improve significantly after surgery,” said Dr. Neil Bhattacharyya, of Brigham and Women’s Hospital, a senior author of the study, in a statement.

According to the study, people who suffer from sinusitis list chronic fatigue in addition to facial pain and nasal blockage as their worst symptoms.

The research showed that endoscopic sinus surgery to remove blockages dramatically improved their energy afterward.

The paper looked at 28 studies of 3,427 patients. Each study showed that patients who were fatigued before surgery had their energy back an average of one year later.
