In brief: Good question
Sinusitis is the most over-diagnosed entity in the field of upper respiratory infections.
The great majority of these infections are viral and are constantly being treated blindly and often with unindicated antibiotics. The symptoms of rhino-sinusitis are nasal congestion and obstruction, pain between the eyes, pain and pressure under the eyes and occasionally headaches.Yellow nasal drainage.

In brief: Pain, fever,
Fevers, sinus pains, drainage that is usually thick yellow-green, headaches.
You could have accompanying pharyngitis (throat infection), otitis media (ear infection) as well because the ear, nose, throat and sinuses are connected and infection in one place can lead elsewhere. (www.Chrisohmd.Com).
