Mouth ulcers connected with sinusitis

I have been diagnosed with sinuses my whole life. My nose will get terribly swollen but no blocked nose. I get terrible sinus headaches below my eyes and above my eyes. I recently developed an ulcer on my gums I first thought it was an abscess so I went to my dentist as it was giving me terrible throat pain (tonsillitis feeling) and ear ache that will come every 2 mins. I also got like a bubble on my jaw line that is painful, she took x-rays and said its not an abscess but an ulcer due to me having sinusitis and it's draining into my jaw into my glands under my jaw. Can that be true? I suffer from terrible head aches every second day, I use allergex and nose sprays, humidifiers what else should one do? How can I get rid of sinuses?

Can’t see that there would be an association of the mouth ulcer with sinusitis.  I would suggest a CT scan of the sinuses and an ENT opinion re the sinuses.
