What are the symptoms of sinusitis?

I have been having lots of strange symptoms that at first I thought might just be a sinus infection. Lots of drainage, headache, jaw pain, ear pressure, etc. Lately, my throat feels like it spasms. When that happens, it almost feels like my heart skips a beat. I'm not sure which one comes first sometimes. Its in the right side of my throat, and not in my mouth rather in my neck that hurts. There are no bumps or sore "spots". It just tightens and aches there. The tightening and the heart skipping is the scariest. Any ideas?

HI. Yes, your symptoms are that of sinusitis. Now complicating further in the throat and neck. I would suggest you to visit a ENT Doctor , get the CT scan for sinuses to know the exact position of illness. This will guide for further management,. May a an ECG / EKG and cardio opinion is better just to rule out heart problems ( can again be secondary to the ENT problems) .
