Killer cold turned into what seemed like sinus infection. Antibiotics seemed to help, then progress stopped. Now low energy, loose stools. What's up?

In brief: Sinusitis

The symptoms could have recurred because you were either not treated with the appropriate antibiotic or not for a long enough duration.
Sinus infections can linger. Your loss of energy and loose stools could either be from the antibiotics or from lingering infection in sinuses. Consider special sinus x-rays. Home sinus washes are also a good option along with prescription nasal sprays.
