In brief: Try OTC meds

You probably have sinus headaches.
If you have fever also, pl go to an urgent care center to get a prescription for antibiotic. Otherwise try OTC antihistamines like Claritin (loratadine) or Zyrtec for a couple of weeks and if still symptomatic, pl follow up with your ENT for some imaging studies for the sinuses.
