Hi Venkat,

Thank you for posting your query.

From your symptoms, it appeared to be a case of sinus infection, so, the initial course of treatment was correct. However, sinus headache usually does not last for so long, if well treated.

If sinus is treated, you should look for other diagnosis such as migraine. please discuss this with your doctor. You may also get a brain scan done.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,

Dr Sudhir Kumar MD (Internal Medicine), DM (Neurology)
