Brief Answer:
Your blood tests are typical changes due to the sinus infection.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for asking HealthcareMagic,
I read your question carefully and I can understand your concern.

The results of your blood tests are mostly due to the sinus infection. They will return to normal in a week or too. In general sinus infections does not need treatment with antibiotics. Drink plenty of fluids and do sinus lavage with saline solution. If the problem is lasting more than 10 days let me know so I can recommend medicines accordingly.

You can take care of the sunburn by applying a moisturizing cream with aloe vera, vaseline or an aftersun cream. In general, if the sunburns are only first grade, it won't need any more treatment that what is advised above.

From what you are describing me you need to see a doctor help you treat the anxiety attacks and the paranoia. You may see your family physician and tell him/her about then and if needed then only refer you to a specialist.

Hope this is helpful.
Let me know if you have other questions or concerns.
