Rule out allergy: A CAT scan of the sinuses is the most specific technique of identifying true sinus inflammation. The symptoms you express are consistent with upper respiratory tract allergy. Try OTC antihistamines such as Claritin (loratadine) or Allegra for some relief and if you do not see any improvement, consult an allergist.
