Better get checked sooner.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HCM.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

Symptoms you describe seems to be caused by sinusitis, cluster headaches may be taken in consideration too.

Bith these conditions if left untreated may progress and your condition may worsen, so, in my opinion, you need to be evaluated medically sooner, but doesn't have to be an extreme emergency.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Greetings.
