Have been dealing with sinus issues for a few months, have been on a couple doses of antibiotics which seem to help but never fix the issue. Have been seeing an ENT doctor who has learned I have a deviated septum from a CT scan along with enlarged turbinates. I'm scheduled to have that surgery to fix the septum and reduce the turbinates in the next couple of weeks.

My question relates to other issues I have been having which I'm trying to figure out if they relate to my sinus issues. My left check has had some tingling / numbness sensation. There is no swelling or droopiness visually. I had thought this was due to the swelling but more recently I have started to experience very sore arms. Most of this is in the back of the arms and forearms. There is nothing physical that would have caused this. I've also started to get a slight tingling sensation in my hands. Is this something that could be related or any idea what could be causing this.

The parathesia / soreness / numbness that you described are unlikely to be related to the sinusitis. Nerve conduction studies can be advised to look for the possible cause.
