Jaw?: If you grind your teeth, the cheek pain may be from that. A normal x-ray may not however totally rule out a sinus infection. If the suspicion is strong enough, a trial with abx and/or a CT scan may be needed. Left eye itching and nasal congestion are likely from allergies . Have you tried a nasal steroid? If yes, consider seeing an allergist.
