In brief: Fatigue
Hello. Sinusitis can play a role in our overall health by decreasing our sleep or having a negative effect on our sleep quality.
The immune system gets chronically stressed if your sinus disease is persistent. These in turn commonly lead to fatigue.

In brief: Maybe
If the sinusitis leads to nasal obstruction this can lead to poorer sleeping and fatigue.
You should contact an ENT doctor for a full history and exam.

In brief: No
Chronic sinusitis is defined as signs and symptoms of sinus inflammaton persisting beyond 8-12 weeks.
Certainly we can feel run down with any chronic illness but i would encourage you pursue a thorough medical evaluation by your primary care provider to exclude more common causes of tiredness.
