<p>The pressure and pain in the forhead area are most probably due to sinusitis. Also the heat sensation and tremors seem like chills and rigors due to the high fever. Once your infection is treated and the sinusitis improves, the symptoms should subside. For the fever keep on taking tylenol/motrin. For sinisitis continue taking the prescribed medicines and take lots of fluids. Regular steam inhalation 2-3 times a day helps in curing sinusitis fast.</p><p>Regards</p>
