In brief: Sinus Infection

Depending on which sinus(es) is/are affected, you will first experience symptoms of a cold- stuffy, runny nose, then headache or facial pain and pressure.
Post nasal drip, feeling tired and fever is not uncommon. Your teeth may also hurt. If in doubt, check with with your doctor or ENT specialist.

In brief: Sinus infection

Common symptoms are pain over the sinus location (areas of face), sneezing, green or yellow drainage, sore throat, headache, may have fever.
The sphenoid sinuses are located deeper and you may not have these symptoms. It is important to seek treatment to avoid other medical problems such as abscess, pneumonia. The pain associated with sinus problems is sometimes mistaken for migraine.
