Bulimia Causing Sinusitis?

So I went to a local health clinic yesterday as the weather here so bad couldn't see my own dr. Anyhow she took x-rays of sinuses and said they looked okay, but based on my symptoms I have a sinus infection. For nearly the past month I have had cheek, jaw, and neck pain that wraps all around my head, yet no drainage. She did put me on an antibiotic but here's my question, could all my throwing up (every day) have caused me to have sinusitis, this is the second round of antibiotics. Erin
