In brief: Sinus infection

Hello. Sinus infection symptoms typically occur with nasal congestion, thick nasal drainage, facial pressure/pain, altered smell, dental pain and fatigue.
Feet and hand nerve sensations are typically not associated with a sinusitis.

In brief: Not directly

Sinus infections may occasionally lead to other infections within the skull, including sub or epidural empyema, brain abscess, and rarely thromboses of the venous sinuses.
These can be responsible for a wide variety of neurologic manifestations, but tingling in the feet or hands would be distinctly unusual.
