Probably: Assuming you are otherwise healthy, the answer is probably, especially if you have had a recent cold, and/or plane travel. Call your doc. Rx may include something to open nasal passages, something to thin out mucus, something to kill germs.

Possible but..: Though you may have a sinus infection, it could be coming from your teeth. It is common for pain from a tooth and/or abcess of the dentition to radiate into the locations you have described. It would be advised to have it checked out by a dentist to see if it has dental origin.

Could be a tooth: It is possible that it is a sinus infection, but another possibility is an infected tooth. See your dentist for an evaluation to see if a tooth is causing the problem.
