Why has not paracetamol or roxid helped in abating headaches, fever and cold caused by sinusitis?

I had head ache,fever and cold 2 months back i was adviced by the Dr to take Roxid and paracetamol ,the fever and cold subcided but heaviness in the head and eye lids and pain behind the eye bal persisted when i was adviced to take Cephodyl for 5 days when it still persisted i was asked to take cephpod for 5 days the problem still persisted ,I met ENT who checked me and said that there was no problem and adviced not to take Antibiotics he priscribed antiallergic tablets for 30 days the problem still persists I met another ENT who has now priscribed Amoxycicilin for 7 days and asked me to get CT Scan if it still persists i have completed 4 days and there is slight improvement . what do you think is the problem for heaviness in the head and eyelids, pain in the eyebrows,

General & Family Physician 's  Response
You had taken multiple antibiotics/anti allergic drugs for your sinusitis.It can be due to-
- The infecting organisms being resistant to the antibiotics applied.( culture & sensitivity test of nasal secretions, blood check up will help.)
-- head ache - tension head ache, muscular head ache, medicines overuse head ache.
- related to certain eye problems ( raised pressure in eyes, refractory error)
- certain conditions related with brain.
You need to consult expert physician to guide you for investigations/treatment.
