Sinus congestion and feeling run down

I was diagnosed with a sinus infection over two weeks ago and have done 1 and half courses of antibiotics. At the time of diagnosis, the NP noted that I had swollen tonsils but no positive strep test. Also around this time, I had a stomach bug. I felt really lousy the first week, constant cough and total weakness. Went to an ENT last Friday because of continued pain and pressure and was given a cortisone shot. The pain and pressure have reduced somewhat but I'm on pain medication. Now I just feel exhausted but also have difficulty sleeping. I've also started having difficulty swallowing again and stomach pain and nausea. My neck has been sore as have my glands through this illness and I've run an off and on low grade fever. Is this just remnants of the virus or is something else going on?
