Welcome to ehealthforum.
If the sinusitis or the sinus infection is severe and widespread, then you can have symptoms like headaches and dizziness associated with other symptoms. The cough could be associated due to probable post nasal drip caused by the sinus infection. You should consider getting a thorough evaluation done by an ENT specialist to see if the symptoms can be controlled with conventional medications or if you need surgical procedure or endoscopic drainage to cure the infection.
Take care.
