Sinus infection: It sounds like you have a sinus infection. Flonase will not be enough.

You also need an sinus decongestant like claritin-d 12 hour also twice a day. On top of that you should use a saline nasal rinse like the neti pot several times a day.

Needs workup: New onset facial pain requires some workup to determine the cause. For you, this may include an MRI of the brain and ct of the sinuses. This is to rule out something dangerous, like a tumor. To treat the pain, regardless of cause, a sphenopalatine block may be helpful. I would also be suspicious as to why your B12 is so low. ...Read more
