Depends: If you don't have an allergic condition, you may well have a sinusitis infection if these symptoms have gone on for more than 10 days. Try saline irrigation to see if it helps. If not, you will need to see a doctor.

Sorry about your problem with Obamacare. Since the news media has often touted its success, perhaps you should write a letter to the editor in your local paper to voice your concern. Perhaps something may happen.
