How can sinus problem be treated?

Q: I suffered from a cold last year while returning to my hometown by air. The next day I had a severe headache and blurred vision with a problem in focusing on objects. Since then there has been a vision problem. I feel stress in front of the ears and behind my eyebrows. The doctor thought it was a sinus problem but all the X-rays of the lungs and skull were clear. So, he prescribed L Montus, Montair and Mucalyte with Nasivion and steam inhalation, which I have been taking for a month. I am allergic too for the last 3 years and take Ventroline, Omnacortal 20, Ceroflow and Duralyn for 10-15 days once in a year. I get blurred vision during the daytime and nasal blockage in the morning with no headache. When I am in a closed place like an office or a mall, I feel uneasy. I do not feel active and all the noise gets to me.
