the symptoms you had written may be related to your problem.
but there are many other diseases having the same symptoms.

I advice you to take your CT Scan to ENT surgeon and get it properly evaluated.
It may be possible that after treatment you may get relieve from your problem.

Pathologist and Microbiologist Dr. M Agarwal's  Response
hello. Welcome to HCM.
Polypoidal mucosa in all sinuses can be the result of allergy. First, it is important to go in for ALLERGEN TESTING. you can get these in any standard laboratory. If positive, the best approach is to avoid allergen and go in for medical therapy. You can even try homeopathy for allergy.
However, in many cases, surgery is the answer to chronically inflammed sinus mucosa. it will be best to visit ENT specialist, you will examine and guide you. Your symptoms are definitely due to your sinuses. It is important to get it treated as long standing sinus irritation may be complicated by many other superadded infections.
Take care.
