So far with your symptoms this is most likely to be a sinus infection. Mostly these infections are viral and can become superadded by the bacterial infection too. Sweating can be seen in such viral infections. The swollen glands are due to drainage of the infection. Headache is one of the most common symptom of such infections.
You got antibiotic twice but no response , this means that either your antibiotics were not sensitive to bacteria involved or this is still ongoing viral infection. However viral infections can lasts two weeks but can linger on. On the other hand bacterial infections in these areas can be with low grade fever.
The tingling in jaw line is because of the inflammation of these nerves due to infection.
Meningitis is not likely at all with these symptoms and with this history.
Similarly diseases like cancers are not likely because of association of pain with the glands. The glands in cancer are not painful.
So CT is the right move and you need it for sure, rest of the treatment will be accordingly. If you have not tried aleve then take it twice daily. Its best far among over the counter pain killers.
