Eye: Sinus infections can lead to preseptal or orbital cellilitis. If your eye is painful with lots of drainage then see your primary doctor asap...
Dr. Charles Titone

Yes: Infections of the sinuses can even cause blindness. Any vision changes with the finding of vision changes need immediate treatment. Oral antibiotics are sometimes effective with decongestants but surgical intervention is indicated in more severe cases.

First, diagnosis: Sinus congestion is not as easy to diagnose by the patient as one might think. You may really have nasal congestion. And most causes of nasal congestion are viral infections. Therefore, it is very likely that the overall symptoms of a viral infection may lead to a decrease in appetite. The course of these infections is 7-10 days. If longer, consult you physician.

See your doctor: If this has been going on a long time, it is likely migraines but if it is relatively new, see your doctor to make sure it is not something more dangerous. Also, he or she may be able to help you either prevent these episodes, make them less frequent, or at least treat them so they resolve sooner.
