Bad viral sinus infection after effects

I had two bad viral sinus infections 4 months ago. I have been left with no taste or smell. However worse than that I feel unwell most of the time. Nauseated and dizzy. Also my nose feels numb at the Bridge and tip. I have a post nasal drip and cough. A scan showed a mildly deviated septum with a bony spur also thickening in my ethmoid sinuses. My quality of life is no good due to the overall feeling of malaise....I have tried several steroid sprays and am sinus rinsing now....can you offer any advice.... Thank you

You seem to have developed chronic sinusitis. If the sprays and washes don’t help after 2 months, one would consider sinus surgery to clear the sinuses.

We moved from Wisconsin, where we lived all our life/born & raised, to KY & TN, 12 years ago. Ever since being in the south, I've had sinus drippage and infections, aprox @ 6 months. Does that make sense ? I'm 74 years old and have never had sinus issues in my life, before this.
