I have had sinus pressure around eye for weeks. WEnt to the doctor was told sinusitis. Been inhaling and taking decongestants regulrly. The pressure round my eye is better but now keep getting blocked ears along with dizziness, shaking episodes with hands and a feeling of weakness in my right arm with visual disturbances such as floaters and and blurry vision from time to time. I also have a yellow furred tongue decreased sense of small and dry mouth and been experiencing anxiety/panic attacks. is this all my siniusitis or should I be worried about something else??

Brief Answer:
Yes symptoms suggest sinusitis

Detailed Answer:

I have studied your case,

All other symptoms suggest sinusitis but anxiety and panic attacks are not usually associated with anxiety or panic attacks.
You need to continue antibiotic and decongestant.
Check your blood pressure and maintain your proper diet for early recovery.
Anxiety and panic attacks may be due to side effects of some medication you are taking, talk with your treating doctor regarding that.

Take steam inhalation and warm water gargle with betadine/tantrum solution.
For early recovery drink plenty of water, eat easily digestible food, improve immunity, and take fruit juices and soups.
If required then you may need to do blood investigation to rule out other infection.
