Brief Answer:
As below

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Your symptoms are suggestive of sinusitis.
Please visit an ENT specialist for sinus examination with endoscopy to arrive at the diagnosis.
Also tests like CBC, urine examination, thyroid level, blood sugar test and ultrasound of the abdomen and pelvis should be done, to rule out thyroid problem, diabetes or renal cause.
So please get the above done as suggested.
All the best
Please feel free to discuss further

It depends on the cause.
