Sinusitis can take a long time to heal completely with cough and sputum persisting for a long period. Sharp pain in the right arm especially if associated with lower chest discomfort can be because of the pleuritis i.e the inflammation of pleura, which can happen in lower respiratory tract infections and needs X Ray chest to diagnose it.
