Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, most of the headaches are functional in origin, migraine, if it is not being sent for CT brain then it is advisable to get it done to ruled out system caused, for the pain Aspirin can be tried, if this is the migraine then Ergotamine preparation is best, for the sinusitis Tab Ibuprofen with Acetaminophen is good, if found infection then antibiotic can be tried hope this information helps.
