Have intense sinus pain, feels raw, sore throat from dripping, and feels like congestion upper chest area, also hoarse voice now, very painful dry sinus and painful congestion which requires me to 'clear my throat' frequently (its lower than that though, the congestion, I'm clearly clearing my chest), I don't know if I need antibiotics or not. Phlegm bright yellow but not a ton of it, more so in the morning also foul smell from sinus. Also, this is really bad in the morning and at night. During the day somehow I've been able to 'walk it off' and feel relatively OK, despite persistent sinus symptoms, esp. to the right. This has been going on for about a week, progressively getting worse.
Well, chest congestion can be due to bacterial infection associated with Sinusitis. It is the accumulation of excess fluid and mucus in the lungs.You may be having associated lung infection along with Sinusitis. These both can be managed and treated with antibiotics.Please see doctor.Good luck .
