Chronic, Recurring Sinus Issues

My wife has been having extremely bad sinus issues since late September. She went to the doctor in Sept. and was diagnosed with a sinus infection and given antibiotics. She began to feel better on the antibiotics but toward the end of the course started going downhill again. This cycle persisted through 3 more visits to the doctor with more antibiotics (including an antibiotic injection to kick off the treatment) and steroids added additionally to help move things along. Eventually, she was referred to an ENT specialist. He found no signs of infection in the sinuses but did note that her sinus cavities are small. He then tested her for allergies and found nothing via those test. He finally came to the conclusion that she has Laryngopharyngeal reflux. She is now suffering again from sinus issues even though she has been taking the reflux medication that the doctor prescribed her. She has not been well for more than 2-3 straight weeks since this all started back in September.

When she gets sick, her sinuses are inflamed and irritated. They are also so stuffed and congested she can barely breath out of them. Her throat burns, she gets intense sinus headaches (she's had migraine issues for years), and when she blows her nose her mucus is either green or flecked with blood. I'm at my wit's end trying to figure out what's going on here. Does anyone have any advice on what to do or if there is a specialist other than an ENT she should be seeing?
