Having massive headaches and sinus pain.. Had a bad cold about a week ago did it turn into sinus infection?

Having massive headaches  and sinus pain.. Had a bad cold about a week ago did it turn into sinus infection?

Actually....: The symptoms are not a great indicator of sinus infection nor are MRI's or even biopsies.
