I am sorry you are having these symptoms.

sometimes a steroid nasal spray like Nasocort or Rhinocort or Nasonex or Flonase

you might need a course of antibiotics to help clear up a bacterial sinus infection.

if these don't help your sinus issues, you need to see an ENT doctor and get a sinus CT scan to check your sinuses.

you might need stronger stomach acid medications, like Nexium to help your heart burn.

also you might need H Pylori testing to check for this bacteria in your stomach which can also worsen stomach acid.

have you been on a course of antibiotics yet?
