These are fairly common symptoms of 2 fairly common problems: allergy and/or chronic sinusitis. Both, although very different in their cause, can present with almost everything you have described. I would rule out chronic sinusitis first, as it is the easier to both diagnose and treat. Chronic sinusitis is either inflammation or infection of your sinuses. This could still be a sinus infection despite your lack of response to a short course of antibiotics. A CT scan of the sinuses can do this fairly definitively. If this is not a chronic sinus inflammation or infection, then I would suggest pursing an allergy evaluation. First, speak to your doctor about what you are experiencing. Then work with your doctor to try to figure out the problem. In this way you can get on appropriate treatment.
