Everytime I stand up I get a sharp pain in the top right side of my head. I have bronchitis and I'm pretty sure a sinus infection my head also hurts when I cough. What is this?

In brief: Sinusitis

Sinusitis can explain your symptoms.
The diagnosis can usually be made on history and physical exam. A plain xray will also show it, or a CT scan to get more details - but this is usually not required to treat an initial episode of sinusitis.

In brief: Sinusitis possible

Sinusitis is possible.
To confirm, you need to see a clinician & possibly get a sinus CT scan. Hope that helps.
