In brief: Clinical and X-ray

Rhino-sinusitis has a number of clinical symptoms and signs.
Yellow-green nasal discharge, pain or pressure under and between the eyes. Headache alone surprisingly is not that common. Post nasal drainage and cough are common. If these symptoms last for more than 10 days see an ENT doc. Cat scan is the gold standard for a diagnosis. But most acute symptoms are viral.
