Any : Any new or different headache, especially one that persists despite taking a pain medication (like tylenol) should be evaluated by a medical professional. Headaches can be from many different causes, and may accompany upper respiratory or sinus infections, but that type of illness would not typically make a person feel weak. Any vision problems, stiff neck associated with the headache, or fever over 102 are reasons to seek medical care immediately.

Sinusitis: It sounds like you have sinus disease. If you have a history of allergies, an antihistamine might help. If the symptoms are worsening, consider seeing your doctor as you might have a sinus infection which would require an antibiotic. Feel better.
