Producing more saliva in Bilateral maxillary sinus disease

I just found out that I have bilateral maxillary sinus disease. My family doctor has told me to go talk to my ENT . I ve had this for over two months now. My appointment with my ENT is in two weeks. But I m having sinus pain, my ears feel full, my teeth are hurting and I ve had jaw pain for three weeks now. I ve been clenching my teeth at nights which is what I contributed the jaw pain to. But in the last week I ve also had problems with my salivary glands , they re not producing much saliva. Now I m thinking maybe all of these symptoms are due to the sinus disease. What do you think? Also should I reschedule my appointment for an earlier day because of how long I ve had this, or am I being paranoid about it? Tired of feeling this way.
