Yes, you can: Allergies can also cause inflammation of your sinuses. Your symptoms can indicate so many different issues, including bruxism. If your symptoms last more than two weeks, see both your dentist and physician.

Yes: Cold/flu like symptoms caused by virus. Infected sinus caused by b bacteria. Allergies can mimic either. See your GP or an ENT.
