Sinuses

Question:

Whenever my sinuses act up, I immeadiately get a headache(in the back of my head), ear infection, pain in my 2 front teeth, and chills. What can I take to deal with this issue?

Answer:

The symptoms you describe are not routinely associated with a sinus infection.  I suggest that the next time these symptoms occur, you consider consulting an ENT physician for further evaluation.
