Q.

Can Sinusitis symptoms change and can they be linked to Covid-19

I didn't have a cold, nor did I or do I have a particularly blocked nose with mucus. I did, however, have immense pain in my cheeks, jaw and teeth. I'm now 12 days in and finally pain is easing. I've had 2 courses of antibiotics, codeine/paracetamol (60/1000) every 4 hours, Ibuprofen (400) every 5 hours, Fexofenadine x180, olbas oil and cold flannel but nothing has touched the pain. It has been intense.

It may be due to sinusitis, neuralgia or a jaw/teeth problem. If not resolving then a CT scan may be needed.
