I am 15 years old female and I am suffering from chronic sinusitis nearly from two years and now I am in 10th. I suffer from severe headache daily due to which I can't study. Headache becomes totally fine in the evening but it starts in the morning nearly 9 pm little and it becomes worst till afternoon, it also gets better if I sleep. My nose is even fully blocked. Mucus is not coming out. When I sneeze only little comes. I feel pressure around my eyes even. In x-ray the final impression is maxillary and frontal sinusitis. I don't understand why headache is more in evening and afternoon and why it becomes less in evening as well as why it becomes better as I sleep in afternoon. Is it sure that I am causing from sinusitis only or any other problem? please answer all my questions and tell me what should I do further. Please.

Only way to confirm sinusitis is to take a ct scan of the paranasal sinuses and diagnostic nasal endoscopy. If both these combined with history suggestive of sinusitis then you need to be treated for the same. Treatment includes a long course of nasal steroid sprays if not responding then you need to undergo endoscopic sinus surgery x ray has no value in diagnosis in modern ent practice.
