Eye strain with sinus

I have a mild sinus infection for the last 3 days. Along with it, I have a high sensitivity to light, prefer to be in the dark or dim light - if I expose myself to normal room/natural light, or any screens, my eyes start to pain and feel stressed. Being in the dark again gives relief. I have constant pain near my temples and forehead which I presume is sinus. Not sure why the light is affecting me so much. Is it something to be concerned about or once sinus pressure is relieved it will be ok?

It appears you have common migraine headache with photo phobia ( intolerance to light). Consult an experienced ENT doctor, get a CT scan of sinuses done and start treatment. For migraine three things should be considered, life style modification, migraine chemo prophylaxis and medicine for SOS use.
