Viral disease: They are many forms of viral diseases that affect mostly the bronchi inside the lungs. The yellow mucus could be a translation of an additional bacterial infection. Antibiotic treatment, a chest xray and a CBC and metabolic panel would give additional clues.

Viral infection: I am not sure if i already answered this question but i will try again. Sinus disease does not often produce dizziness or lightheadedness. Your expectation for an antibiotic to be effective in 48 hours is not warranted. Finally, the combination of runny nose, headache, ear ache are more typical of a viral infection. The data in the literature suggest that as high as 98% of all uris are viral.

Sure: You could still be dehydrated and have any number of electrolyte abnormalities. Drink water or even try pedialyte solution if you don't improve quickly.

Take a deep breath: Relax... It does not sound like cancer. Those are a lot of symptoms though. It is most likely a viral infection, like the "flu", but it could be something else, so you should go see a doctor and get a proper exam.
