    Hey guss, I also had pain in frontal and back portions of my head, pain behind my eye with clogged ear, I had sinus ct and turned out to be maxillary and ethmoid.

    Actually it is a gray zone where you try to decide which sinus is it based on the location of pain.

    Sinus ct scan will give you accurate location.

    But before that try the treatment which your doctor has prescribed.

    Get well soon.

      Hey guss, don't want to disappoint you but it turned into chronic sinusitis.

      Had several rounds of antibiotics and didn't work, But then my RN of ENT prescribed me the nasal wash with antibiotics, antifungals, steroids, which had minimal side effects and good outcome.

      I can't say I have recovered fully but the symptoms have improved significantly, but I do care for it everyday with saline nasal wash and sleeping on two pillows etc.

      I am going to try new medicines for allergy and will see if that helps me to recover fully.

      But I wish it works for you as every patient is different.
