Brief Answer:
Chronic sinusitis

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic and thanks for putting up the query
The report says that you have sinusitis involving both the maxillary sinuses. The headache is probably due to nasal congestion caused by sinus infection.
It would be better to get a Ct scan paranasal sinuses done to see the condition of other sinuses as well. The management will depend on the report.
You should use nasal spray. That will help you with your symptoms.
Surgery for sinusitis can be done but the decision depends upon the Ct pictures.
Also get your refraction done.
Any further questions are always welcome.
Take care
Thanks and regards

Two days ago I started getting occasional sharp pain inside my right ear and occasional shooting pains in my head, also on the right side. My head feels a little tender in that spot. I also noticed some small, painless lumps on my jaw line under my right ear. I have no idea if they re related to the other symptoms. Any ideas what this could be?

My period is now 16 days late, and it is very regular...I use a menstruation tracker. I have been feeling sick to my stomach, getting headaches, severe backaches, and feeling dizzy. I did take a pregnancy test, but it was negative, so I wasn't too worried because I am on the pill (although there were probably a few times where I forgot to take it and then doubled up the next night). Suddenly today, I started getting severe sharp pains in my lower abdomen (mostly on the left side, but radiating to both sides) and severe pains in my upper abdomen, like I was going to throw up...I feel weak and started to have bright red bleeding, although it isn't heavy. all day today before the pain, I was having brown discharge that had stringy clots in it. I am debating on visiting the ER and wanted to ask your opinion.
