CT scan?: One needs to ascertain whether the sinus is the cause for your symptoms and a CT scan may be helpful if you still have no response from Cipro (ciprofloxacin) in another 24 hrs. Besides sinusitis, uncontrolled GERD can also be a cause for your cough but not headaches. It has been suggested also that GERD may increase the risk in sinusitis. See ENT if needed.
