Sinusitis?: You may be dealing with a sinus infection. If you are not improving, you should notify your pcp. You may need antibiotics. The aching without fever often goes with sinus infection. In the meantime, you can try rinsing your sinuses with sterile water and premix packets of neti pot. Feel better soon!
