Yes, possibly

Sinus_infections
Sore gums may be a sign of an infection. If the infection is with the upper gums, the infection may sometimes spread to the sinuses leading to a sinusitis associated with sinus pains in the face.

Had oral surgery 11/2011 to repair an OAF in right maxillary sinus-having repeat symptoms that come & go: gum drainage, ear & face sore...OAF recur???

Good chance

Maxilla
It sounds like the oroantral fistula has either reoccurred or more likely never healed properly in the first place. You should have it checked by the surgeon.

i have a knot between ny nose and eyelid and face is sore. is this just sinus?

Nasalacrimal duct ob

Head-nose
No not likely sinus problems but more likely a partial or full obstruction of the tear drainage system into your nose. This bump you feel may be the site of obstruction which is painful and may cause excessive tearing or stickiness in the tears. This should be evaluated for treatment.

Sinus infection. My head hurts and face, too. Also, sore neck. But I think due to tension and period. Should I be scare it will spread to brain?

Sinus infection

Head-brain
It is quite unlikely today. However, before the days of antibiotics, a sinus infection could spead to the brain fluid or meninges. We don't see if often today because we have antibiotics available. With your symptoms, you should be evaluated to make sure you get the right treatment.

It sounds like you may have an early but possibly serious oral or dental infection. See a dentist or ENT specialist as soon as possible.

Hi my skin on my face is red and burning. no rash. i suffer from sinus. could this be connected? its real sore when sitting in heated areas. plz help.

Skin redness / sinus

Rash
Hello Ibex, if you are currently experiencing a sinus infection and have any inflammation or pain in the skin itself, you should be seen my your local ENT doctor soon. These infections can sometimes spread outside of the bony cavities in the face and affect surrounding tissues. This type of infection may occasionally require surgical drainage of the sinus.

Have had sinus infection off\on for 3 months. Now my eyes and face hurt. Even to smile hurts. Should I be worried? Left side neck tender. Tension?

Yes

Head-eye
if it causes facial pain and sensitivity , need to get antibiotics after confirmation of the sinusitis by clinical examination ,and preferably CT scan of sinuses ,to be orderd by the PCP ,and if not CT scan atleast xray of sinuses. Somethimes the opening of the sinuses are blocked which tends to cause stagnation of the mucus and pus inside the sinuses and can cause pain,fever. see PCP/ENT doctor

Have sharp staving pain on bottom right side of head like 2" below my ear. Also my face is sore on that side and my gums?

Pain

Head-face
This sounds like and abcess (dying tooth) so please see your dentist as soon as you can to get a proper diagnosis and treatment. The gum is sore because the pressure caused from the infection is trying to find a way to get out.

Face muscles around mouth and jaw are always sore and uncomfortable. Teeth feel like not resting together right, always feel clenched. Gums sore.

Likely clenching

Tooth_whitening
With the consistency of symptoms, I think you must clench a good deal of the time, not giving facial muscles time to rest. If your orthodontic occlusion is off, this can magnify the pain to teeth, gums and jaws. See a dentist who is proficient at TMD issues. Good luck.
