I had an MRI and was told I have a severe sinus infection in every sinus in my head ...I also have severe shoulder pain....Is this due to infection?

In brief: Unlikely

Mri is not a good test for looking at the sinuses but it can often detect fluid and inflammation.
These findings on MRI are not usually related strictly to sinus infection. Though possible, a connection between your sinuses and your shoulder is unlikely. More history about your shoulder pain would be helpful.
