In brief: Postnasal Drip

In the context of the sinus infection, the likely cause for the discomfort and physical findings is the drainage of infected mucous draining from the back of the nose into the throat.
There is also the possibility of a throat infection, pharyngitis. A number of clinical factors which can differentiate a bacterial infection from a viral one -- the former of which may benefit from antibiotics.
