I often have a headache, now the headache spreads to the cheeks, eyebrows and forehead. Then if I bow or I press the sick part, I even feel more pain. In my nose sometimes there is a sound that is open. Also, I often feel my ears hurt, then the mucus is kettle in my throat. It’s been a long time since I’ve experienced this. But because of time like this, I immediately found out on the internet, and the results said I had sinusitis. Is my disease severe? Can it be cured?
