I have been having a dull headache on and off the past two days which turns into a sharp then dull pain in my temple when I clear my throat. I did just get over a bad cold about 3 days ago but still have mucus. Should I worry about this temple pain or is it just sinusitis?

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the exact diagnosis based on your symptoms alone without examining you to correlate the examination findings with your symptoms. If the symptoms are persistent, you should consider visiting your doctor/healthcare provider for thorough evaluation and get started on treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and evaluation results). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/healthcare provider and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
